UN appeals for funds to help settle millions displaced by climate change,conflict

The plea was made by the U.N.’s International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Geneva Monday to support its operations and help "create a system that realizes migration’s promise as a force for good throughout the world." "The IOM Global Appeal seeks funding to save lives and protect people on the move, drive solutions to displacement and facilitate safe pathways for regular migration," a statement released by the IOM says. Those objectives form part of the IOM’s new five-year Global Strategic Plan. The organization says that the nearly $8 billion would go toward serving nearly 140 million people, including internally displaced people and the local communities that host them. Crucially, it would also allow for an expansion of IOM’s development work, which helps prevent further displacement, the appeal states. The IOM has called on governments, the private sector, individual donors and "other partners" to contribute to the fund, noting it’s the first time it has put out such an appeal. Of the $7.9 billion, around $3.4 billion would go toward "saving lives and protecting people on the move," and $1.6 billion would be spent on facilitating "regular pathways for migration." https://www.foxnews.com/us/un-appeals-7-9-billion-help-millions-people-migrate-combat-climate-change

                Lots of funds are required to feed and resettle climate change refugees. It's really sad as this is a human made crisis which can be solved.
