Overlapping Vulnerability Red Cross Climate Report
The impacts of climate change on humanitarian needs
Climate action today or unimaginable suffering tomorrow
When the climate changes, it affects nature, animals, and humans. With this report we present the broad humanitarian consequences of global warming, with the aim to inform humanitarian actors across different fields.
It is the first of its kind and it highlights the short-term impacts of climate change that will be the most relevant within a 10-year timeframe.
The findings correlate perfectly with what Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers experience all over the world: We now live in a world where the impacts of manmade climate change are hitting harder, more often and intensely.
