Watch the Video. Heading for higher ground: Climate crisis, migration and the need for justice and system change
It may seem distant and not urgent to some. But for millions of people around the world, the time to act is now. Millions of people are forced to leave their homes and communities because of “unnatural” environmental disasters and escalating conflicts heightened by the competition for dwindling resources such as land, water and minerals.The Kyoto Protocol failed to obligate Annex 1 state parties towards significant reductions in greenhouse gas reductions. Meanwhile, developing countries and their indigenous people, fishing communities, herders, peasants and farmers, bear the full brunt of droughts, famines rising sea levels, storm surges, floods and other adverse effects of climate change.A growing call is put forward to strengthen grassroots organizing supported by solidarity movements in developed countries versus the inaction of governments hostaged by the interests of multinational corporations.
