The Challenge

Climate change will lead to more, larger, humanitarian crises. It may also lead to new types of crisis, for which the global response system is not prepared. And it is likely to lead to social, political and economic changes, which will challenge the ways in which humanitarian and civil protection agencies work. Unless we prepare now, we will not be able to save lives as the crises of climate change hit.

Civil society, humanitarian organizations, civil protection, scientists and the private sector, working together.
