Adapting to climate change

Join the fight against extreme poverty

Most of what I hear about climate change is about reducing greenhouse gas emissions. But it’s important that we also look at the impact that climate change is already having on the world. Droughts that jeopardize food security for millions of people and storms like last year’s Cyclone Nargis, which killed over 100,000 people, are reality we need to face and deal with.

To compound the problem, many of the regions feeling the burn of climate change are developing countries. Least responsible to causing climate change, and least able to afford the cost of adapting, this countries deserve a coordinated global response to help defray the costs of climate change.

Negotiations for a new global agreement on climate change are taking place in a few weeks. So now is our chance to show the man who’ll be running the negotiations – Yvo de Boer, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – that there is significant interest around the globe in dealing the consequences of climate change.

Please do your part by signing our petition to Yvo de Boer.
