Abstract

This paper sketches the contours of a Pan-African agenda for climate reparations for the 21st century. Focusing on African peoples in the diaspora and on the continent, it suggests that climate change evinces a new materiality for African peoples, and in this way Pan Africanism offers a movement-building tool and possibilities for reparative approaches to climate change. It proposes a focus beyond the state towards building and nurturing Pan-African institutions that can support African solidarity in the era of climate change.

Keywords: Pan-Africanism, climate reparations, African materiality; African diaspora, economics imperialism; Haiti; Caribbean; climate change
