Challenge of climate change


“Climate change is the biggest human rights challenge of our time” says former Irish president and UN Human Rights High Commissioner Mary Robinson following the conclusion of the recent UN Climate Summit in Doha.

“It's undermining livelihoods‐rights to food and safe water and health and education. It's having people displaced by climate, and that can bring conflict. We're told that we are likely to have as many as 2200 million climate displaced people by 2050. That's not very far away. Where will they go? What kind of conflict will that bring about?” she said.
