The climate crisis is a humanitarian crisis

Climate change is a top driver of humanitarian need and human suffering, particularly for the poorest countries. The impacts threaten to deepen already wide inequalities, resulting in consequences felt by the world at large, including instability, violence and displacement. In a recent speech on humanitarian policy, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Mark Lowcock, made the case for action to support the world’s most vulnerable communities, stressing that in 2020, 12 of the 20 countries most vulnerable to climate change had an inter-agency humanitarian appeal. He detailed ongoing and destabilizing fallout from pressures on livelihoods, water, food and health, among other issues. https://www.un.org/en/climatechange/the-climate-crisis-is-a-humanitarian-crisis

    The climate crisis is a humanitarian crisis, but it is also a moral challenge. We have a responsibility to protect the most vulnerable people on the planet from the devastating impacts of climate change.

                  The climate crisis is undeniably a humanitarian crisis. It's a key driver of suffering, especially in the most vulnerable nations, exacerbating inequalities and leading to broader global consequences like instability, violence, and displacement. UN Under-Secretary-General Mark Lowcock's recent speech underscores the urgent need to support at-risk communities, with a significant number of climate-vulnerable countries requiring humanitarian assistance. The far-reaching impacts on livelihoods, water, food, and health emphasize the critical intersection of climate change and human well-being. Addressing this crisis is essential for a more equitable and stable world.
