WHY CLIMATE CHANGE?

why climate change?

Climate change could push up to 132 million additional people into extreme poverty by 2030.
Climate change is a global crisis we cannot ignore, a humanitarian crisis that can result in an acceleration of the hunger crisis.

What is Climate Change?

Climate change refers to long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns. These shifts may be natural, but since the 1800s, human activities have been the main driver of climate change, primarily due to the burning of fossil fuels, which produces greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide.

What Causes Climate Change?

What Causes
Climate Change?

Human activity. Burning of fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas for energy produces greenhouse gases. Deforestation and conversion of land from forests to farmland, mines and urban centres releases carbon that was once stored in trees back into the atmosphere. Farming livestock like cows and sheep is also a major contributor because the animals produce large amounts of methane when they digest their food.

Effects of Climate Change

It may be tempting to think that climate change mainly means warmer temperatures, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Climate change can lead to intense and recurring droughts, erratic rainfall patterns, floods, severe storms, wildfires, rising sea levels and melting glaciers.

Climate Change Hurts

When climate change devastates the environment, we suffer on every level. And no one pays a higher price than those who’ve contributed the least to this global crisis – the most vulnerable.

Climate change has not only put vulnerable children, families and communities at greater risk of extreme weather events; it has also brought about imperceptible changes that are threatening their life – disrupted livelihoods, increased food insecurity and hunger, and malnutrition.
