No Place Like Home: Introduction
By 2050, there will be an estimated 150 million climate refugees - people forced to leave their homes by droughts, extreme weather patterns and sea level rise associated with climate change. There is no international law designed to protect these most vulnerable people and their needs.
President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives and Premier Talagi of Niue told EJF about how climate change is affecting their countries.
EJF is calling for international protection for climate refugees. We believe that that there needs to be a legally-binding, international Protocol that identifies and protects these people displaced from their homes by deteriorating environmental conditions. We campaign for a new Special Rapporteur on human rights and climate change to be established in the United Nations Human Rights Council.
Human rights should be at the heart of international action on climate change.
Cotton: child labour and human rights abuses
Children as young as seven are employed in the cotton industry for a variety of tasks including cottonseed production, pesticide spraying and the annual cotton harvest.
