THERE ARE ALREADY MORE CLIMATE REFUGEES IN THE WORLD THAN REFUGEES CREATED BY CONFLICT.
It is a crisis of now, not just for future generations.
“Climate change continues to cause increased humanitarian stress as it exacerbates food insecurity, water scarcity, conflict, migration and other trends.”
— Former UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon
It is the world’s most vulnerable people who are made to bear the brunt of climate change, though they are the least responsible for causing it. Climate change is causing hurricanes, droughts, wildfires, flooding, and cyclones. We are currently witnessing terrifying scales of destruction and devastation. It is harming those who are already coping with poverty, conflict, and violence. An increasing number of people are being forced to flee their homes due to severe weather events.
Don’t wait, Act NOW
Tragedies of this magnitude can make you feel like there’s nothing you can do, but you can help!
Higher temperatures and less predictable weather conditions are affecting availability and distribution of rainfall, snowmelt, and river flows. Provide children with sustainable access to clean drinking water.
