EJF looks at water footprints with a focus on water in cotton production and the demise of the Aral Sea which shrunk to 10% of its former volume due to irresponsible cotton production in the region.
By 2050, there will be an estimated 150 million climate refugees - people forced to leave their homes by droughts, extreme weather patterns and sea level rise associated with climate change. There is no international law designed to protect these most vulnerable people and their needs.
President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives and Premier Talagi of Niue told EJF about how climate change is affecting their countries.
EJF is calling for international protection for climate refugees. We believe that that there needs to be a legally-binding, international Protocol that identifies and protects these people displaced from their homes by deteriorating environmental conditions. We campaign for a new Special Rapporteur on human rights and climate change to be established in the United Nations Human Rights Council.
Human rights should be at the heart of international action on climate change.
