Climate Change and Human Rights
In many of the world's poorest countries, its impacts already undermine people’s right to life, health, food, water, housing and self-determination. Where the impacts are felt most acutely, the only way to survive is to move. Today, these climate refugees outnumber refugees fleeing persecution and violence by three to one.
EJF works to raise awareness of this humanitarian crisis and ensure the well-being and welfare of those affected. We campaign for a new, legally-binding instrument for their legal recognition, protection and assistance.
