The human condition1 is my core focus for this blog. Climate finance, its impact and our individual and combined efforts (or inadequacy thereof) is the lens through which I explore this subject. What this means in practice is that I will assess the two-way relationship between climate finance and the human condition. In other words, I will understand and explain how the present socio-political, economic, philosophical as well as circumstantial associations of humans influence the way we figure out ways to collectively finance the mitigation of and adaptation to climate change, and how the latter in turn affects the former.

I sincerely hope you find the articles in this blog useful and thought-provoking. Any critique/comment on any of the articles or the content and quality of the blog is welcome.

There is much misinformation around what is meant by “human condition”. An excellent definition of the human condition, one that I use in this blog has been provided in Gödel’s Proof and The Human Condition – The Basic Essays. Although, for the purposes of this blog, I will not include the biological underpinning of the human condition mentioned in the site.
