Human Impacts of Climate Change

QUNO is concerned about the impacts of climate change on people’s lives, and works to ensure that the rights and dignity of all are upheld while emphasising the need for urgent action. We contribute towards this by emphasizing the human impact of decisions made at the international climate negotiations, collaborating with civil society and engaging with the latest climate science, and exploring linkages between climate change and our other areas of expertise, such as human rights, food policy and peacebuilding. Our resources and publications can be found here.

QUNO collaborates with civil society organisations, including Quaker constituencies, to link multilateral climate change activities with grassroots communities engaging in climate change concerns.

We are promoting enhanced trust and understanding in international negotiations relating to climate change.

QUNO is involved in articulating climate change as a peace and justice concern within international fora and beyond.
