Climate change hurts people. It hurts our food and water. It is one of the biggest threats to the world’s chances of winning the fight against hunger.
Oxfam have been working with poor communities for more than 60 years, and their work now reaches more than 4 million people every year. Their fight against poverty takes place on many fronts, including climate change.
They’ve seen the impacts of climate change every day in the communities in which they work – whether it’s changing rainfall patterns in southern Africa or destructive cyclones in Vanuatu. Climate change is already devastating the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world.
In December, world leaders will meet in Paris to agree on a new global deal on reducing emissions. This is the most significant opportunity for collective global action that’s been seen in years. And so on World Food Day on October 16, Oxfam want to get as many people on board as they can, to show our political leaders that Australians want to see real leadership on climate.
