We Don't Have Time's post

On February 24, 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine. Since then, at least 10,378 civilians have been killed and 19,632 injured, according to a recent UN report.
There is still no end in sight to this conflict. And even when that day finally arrives, the Ukrainians will for decades have to struggle with long-lasting health problems, a devastated infrastructure, a ruined economy, large-scale environmental damages and millions of hectares of farmland destroyed by mining pollution and other military damages.
”We’ve estimated that 15 years of development gains have been wiped out in the last 14 months”, said Jaco Cilliers, Resident Representative, UNDP Ukraine, when he joined our Stockholm Climate Week broadcast in May last year.
We Don’t Have Time has covered the climate and environmental aspects of the war in Ukraine in many ways. We have broadcasted panel talks, keynotes and roundtables featuring Government Ministers of Ukraine, experts on the environmental toll of warfare, on-the-ground representatives from aid organizations stationed in Ukraine, and other important voices.
In this special broadcast you can rewatch all these sessions on demand.

    War is the chief threat to the environment and not to forget how lives of people are jeopardized. It is horrifying to see such huge number of civilians loosing their lives. That is unfathomable!

      Losing over 10,000 civilians is unfathomable. Thank you We Don't Have Time for having panelists that discussed this grave matter and effects of war..

          I am encouraged by the efforts of organizations like We Don't Have Time to raise awareness about the environmental impacts of the war and engage in discussions with relevant stakeholders. I hope the whole world is learning something and will take action soon.

            The detrimental effects of a war cannot be reversed even in decades to come

              War is quite a catastrophe with regard to environment.

                War is bad for the people, and no one ought to experience it. War is horrible for the planet and the environment, as carbon emissions increase exponentially from military activities and the use of explosives. For all the places experiencing war, I'd like to see We Don't Have Time highlight the effects of war on the people, environment, and planet in Ukraine, Congo, Sudan, and especially Palestine, where life and environment have both been affected to a great extent.
