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.
Yeb Saño, head of the Filipino delegation, delivered an emotional speech at the UN climate negotiations last year, shortly after Typhoon Haiyan had devastated his country: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SSXLIZkM3E
Now as Climate Change Commissioner in the Philippines, he explains how climate change is making people hungry and exhorts the world to fight it together.
Note: Yeb mentions that "across theglobe by the year 2020 at least 50 million more people are at risk of going hungry because of climate change." This statistic should refer to 2050, not 2020.
