This year on World Humanitarian Day, humanitarians in different parts of the world tackle the climate change emergency, while experiencing challenges to their safety as they are sometime targets.
We continue to stand in solidarity with people who are least equipped to adapt to the changing climate and are left with no options other than to leave their homes or suffer in dangerous uninhabitable areas.
We want their voices to be heard and climate action raised to the top of the agenda.
