OUR ESCALATING CLIMATE EMERGENCY IS ALSO A HUMANITARIAN EMERGENCY. EVEN IF RISING TEMPERATURES CAN BE KEPT WITHIN 1.5°C OF PRE-INDUSTRIAL LEVELS (AND CURRENTLY WE ARE ON COURSE FOR 2.7°C1) THE WORLD CAN EXPECT A FUTURE CHARACTERISED BY WORSENING GLOBAL FOOD CRISES, BIODIVERSITY LOSS, MORE FREQUENT EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS, AND SHORTER GROWING SEASONS. FRESH WATER WILL BECOME SCARCER AND DISEASE AND MALNUTRITION WILL RISE, CONTRIBUTING TO DISPLACEMENT AND CONFLICT.
