A report published by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) today has found that 20.6 million people were displaced by extreme weather events in 2013 – almost three times as many as those newly fleeing conflict.
As the UN Climate Summit meets on 23rd September 2014, the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) and ByPost will deliver Postcards from the Frontlines of climate change to the United Nations in New York. The postcards, which come from over 16 different countries, call for the UN to appoint a Special Rapporteur on Climate Change and Human Rights.
Many residents in the UK may need to permanently leave their coastal homes due to climate change and increasing flood risk. The UK is just one of many countries facing climate change impacts that threaten to make currently populated areas uninhabitable.
Take a picture of the home you would hate to be forced from, or how extreme weather has affected you, and send it as a free postcard in support of climate refugees.
EJF's investigation reveals the continuing brutal trade in modern-day slaves and Thai Government's failure to adequately address the issue.
