A desperate and largely unknown humanitarian crisis is deteriorating in the Lake Chad Basin region of West Africa, forcing millions of people to flee their homes and leaving millions more in need of humanitarian assistance. Oxfam is providing life-saving support but help is urgently needed to prevent the crisis turning into a catastrophe.
Oxfam and GCCA have created this new video to demonstrate the human impact of climate change. Climate change is happening now, and is affecting the world's poor – wherever they are – first and worst. Climate change is undermining fundamental human rights, and hampering progress toward achieving the MDGs.
We're counting down Copenhagen. The time to act is now - please join our call for a fair and binding climate change deal.
