The UN Climate Summit drew to a close yesterday evening - we summarise the key commitments, pledges and developments from around the world.
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.
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.
