The human cost of climate change

You may think that a climate crisis that threatens lives is years away. But in some of the world's poorest and most isolated places, it’s already having a severe impact.

Right now, the families least responsible for climate change are starving because of it. Weather extremes, such as droughts and floods, are driving hunger because they weaken the fertility of the land. This affects the quality of harvests and can leave livestock starving, essentially eliminating food sources so there are no crops or animal produce for families to consume or sell. Farmers and pastoralist communities like those in Northern Kenya are most affected.

By giving just €2 a week to Concern Worldwide, you could help get emergency food to families whose lands have been ravaged by extreme weather and you can help Concern work together with communities until their lands have been revived once more.

Concern uses the CMAM approach (community management of acute malnutrition) to address climate change induced hunger and malnutrition. By training community members to identify and treat malnutrition, it puts the power in the hands of the community - those closest to the problem.

Malnourished children are proactively identified within their community and referred to local or mobile health clinics. There they are screened and treated for malnutrition. Therapeutic food sachets are the most common treatment, so parents can help improve the child's health from their own home.

Furthermore, Concern provides preventative and resilience building strategies including climate smart farming techniques, such as using drought-resistant seeds to withstand the effects of climate change.
