Human ‘damage’ on the front lines of the climate crisis — Global Issues

  • UN news

The damage to people and livelihoods caused by climate change is happening on a scale that “people on the front lines cannot handle,” according to the UN humanitarian agency, OCHA.

OCHA says that “time is running out for millions of people who are losing all their lives, their homes and their livelihoods” as a result of “extreme weather” that is “decimating” communities around the world.

The majority of those people live in some of the world’s poorest countries, which are the least responsible for the emissions of harmful greenhouse gases that cause climate change.
