“Environment and Humanitarian Action”

New report Environment and Humanitarian Action: increasing effectiveness, sustainability, and accountability – published by the UNEP/OCHA Joint Environment Unit.

 “There is a need to make humanitarian action fit for
the future, anticipating risks and challenges such
as increased vulnerability due to climate change.
This requires a fundamental shift towards a model
of humanitarian action that not only strengthens the
response to crisis, but also learns and adapts in order
to anticipate crises, act before they become disasters
and prevent their recurrence. Better attention to
environmental stewardship, with its multiple and
inextricable linkages with human livelihoods, is central
to this.”

Thanks to Charles Kelly for the citation.
