Home Truths: Anil Krishna Roy
There's No Place Like Home: Campaigning for environmental security and human rights
Each year, millions of people are forced from their homes and land by climate-related, natural disasters. Some of these people are displaced by sudden onset storms and flooding, others by longer term hazards such as drought and desertification. Most are from the world’s poorest and most vulnerable countries. Many face an uncertain future, with nowhere to go and no means to survive.
EJF works to raise awareness and improve the well-being and welfare of these climate refugees. We campaign for a new, legally-binding instrument for their legal recognition, protection and assistance.
Help us get their voices heard
EJF’s Home Truths – the Climate Witness Network is working to connect people around the world, empowering them to start a dynamic conversation on climate change, providing a platform where people can share their thoughts, ideas and hopes. EJF is helping individuals and communities to document the issues that affect them, using photography and film to show what it is like to live on the frontline of climate change.
