CLIMATE CHANGE + CONFLICT = A DEADLY TRAP

People affected by conflict are among those most vulnerable to the climate crisis. You can help support them.

Climate extremes are the new normal in many of the countries that we work in. And they are disproportionately affecting people already enduring the terrible consequences of armed conflict.

 

Countries enduring conflict are less able to cope with increasingly devastating floods, droughts and forced changes in human movement patterns, because their vital infrastructures and support systems are weakened by conflict. So as climate change alters the nature and increases the severity of humanitarian crises, including in conflict situations, humanitarian action needs to adapt.
