The UN Climate Change Conference – COP 24 starts in Katowice/Poland in a week’s time. In the run-up to the event, the church relief organisation Bread for the World discussed the responsibility that the international community holds for the poorest and most vulnerable countries with representatives of its partner countries and German politicians.

The recent Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has once again stressed that climate change and its related hazards pose a major threat to the existence of the poor and vulnerable communities. The publication highlights the importance of limiting global warming to 1.5 °C. The relief organisation Bread for the World has summarised the main facts of the report and the specific challenges facing the African drought corridor south of the Sahara and the low-lying small island state of Tuvalu as well as options for 1.5°C consistent pathways in a report that was discussed in Berlin/Germany.

… not simply about the weather …

Even in the highest government offices, there are said to be people denying the existence of any form of climate change. Or, if they then see no other options but to accept already thousand-fold proven facts, at least deny humans having played any part in it.
