'Beyond Borders' exposes the links between climate change, security and migration.
Beyond Borders, security and military officials, including Brigadier General Stephen A. Cheney, United States Military Corps (RET), Rear Admiral David W. Titley, United States Navy (RET) and the UK Government’s former Climate and Energy Security Envoy Sir David King examine the role of climate change as a catalyst for mass migration and conflicts into the future.
Beatings at gunpoint, slavery, dangerous working conditions and squalid living conditions. These are just a few of the findings from this investigative film by the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) telling the harrowing stories of migrant fishermen working aboard Taiwanese-owned fishing vessels. The film shows that although some new rules have been introduced in Taipei, out at sea human rights abuses and illegal fishing practices continue.
In EJFs Kurzfilm BEYOND BORDERS äußern sich Klima- und Sicherheitsexperten über die Folgen der durch den Klimawandel ausgelösten Migration. In ihren Aussagen zeigt sich die Sorge, dass wir den Klimawandel sehr ernst nehmen und bereits heute aktiv werden müssen. Aufgrund der potenziell hohen Zahl an Klimaflüchtlingen, hat sich EJF das Ziel gesetzt, ihren rechtlichen Schutz sicherzustellen, der heute noch nicht existiert.

Sharks have been on the planet for over 400 million years, long before the first dinosaur emerged on Earth. They have witnessed centuries of the world’s history, but human activity may bring all of this to an end - an entire ancient species facing an early extinction. Around 100 million sharks are killed by humans every single year - the equivalent to approximately 11,415 deaths per hour. EJF is working to protect critical shark species across West Africa and globally.

Sea turtles have been on Earth for over 100 million years, but they are now severely threatened.
EJF has teamed up with chefs and restaurateurs around the world to celebrate World Oceans Day and raise vital funds to support our ongoing work to protect the fish stocks that provide food and income for some of the worlds poorest and most vulnerable people.
This report looks at the impact of climate change on food production and security, and the ways in which people are driven from their homes and lands by slow-onset weather events.
This report focuses on one particular result from climate change – the negative impact on food security and how this factor contributed to the desperation and anger that manifested itself against the Al-Assad regime in Syria.
The Syrian war has resulted in more than 470,000 deaths. 6.6 million people have been internally displaced and nearly five million people are residing in camps in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon as well as an estimated 1.2 million seeking refuge in Europe.
Whilst the war was not solely a result of climate change, the intertwining effects of drought, rural to urban migration, and the increasing unrest due to a lack of government measures to avoid water scarcity, unemployment and growing inequality, are clear.
