Top Climate Emergencies Impacting Refugees in 2022

All over the world, human-induced climate change is accelerating and causing dangerous disruptions to nature and people. Those with the least means to adapt are being hit the hardest, including refugees, internally displaced and stateless people. According to UNHCR, more than 80 percent of refugees and internally displaced people come from countries vulnerable to climate change and live in dangerous conflict situations exacerbated by droughts, monsoon rains and floods. UNHCR is on the ground providing humanitarian assistance to refugees impacted by conflict and climate change displacement, but underfunding threatens the ability to meet urgent needs.
