Oxfam Novib at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change

8 December, 2015

Climate change is dramatically changing the world we love. It’s putting our homes, our land and our food at risk. For nearly a billion people in poverty, more extreme weather and more disasters mean more hunger.

If governments and big businesses are serious about fighting poverty, we need heads of state to make decisions in Paris that show support for the people whose lives and livelihoods are most at risk. These leaders have the power to start taking bold action on emissions, and to start to fix the damage that’s already been done.

Millions of people across the world are already doing incredible things to protect our world. The fight against climate change won’t end this year but together we can win some important battles.
