Around the world, people are fighting climate change in extraordinary ways. In Thailand, Oxfam is working with rice farming communities. Innovative water pumps and new farming techniques are just two of the ways in which people are adapting.
A number of organizations have recently published an open letter to Oxfam executives expressing their concern over Oxfam’s stance on transgenic crops. The Oxfam International confederation – including Oxfam America – does not support GMOs as the solution to hunger, poverty and development.
Oxfam research shows that by 2015 the average number of people affected each year by climate-related disasters could increase by over 50 per cent to 375 million.
