Home Truths: Taslima Begum
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 live in 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.
