Refugees face Increasing Adversities Due to Climate Change

A new report reveals how long-term disasters, including sea-level rise and desertification, and short-term disasters, such as storms and fires, are especially threatening to people living in the Global South and island nations.

Democracy Now! speaks with the co-author of a new study that finds the climate crisis is already leading to a massive increase in the number of refugees being displaced around the world.

Hossein Ayazi is a policy analyst with the Global Justice Program at the Othering & Belonging Institute at the University of California, Berkeley.

Democracy Now! also is joined at the U.N. Climate Summit in Madrid by Saleemul Huq, a climate scientist and the director of the International Centre for Climate Change and Development in Bangladesh. He is advising the bloc of Least Developed Countries in the climate negotiations.
