Firm footing in the face of change: rights and equity in the context of climate change, food insecurity and human mobility

Source(s):  CARE International (CI)

This policy report presents the results of 'Where the rain falls', a research undertaken across 8 countries by CARE and the United Nations University, which confirms that communities are already grappling with the effects of changing rainfall patterns and need to be be supported to make better and more informed choices for successful adaptation. It argues that, if we do not reduce emissions urgently and drastically, if we do not expand livelihoods and risk management options for vulnerable households, they will fall further into poverty with no choice but to migrate.

Using case studies, the report highlights evidence for urgent action related to increased climate variability, increased risk, community-based adaptation, food insecurity and gender, among others; and calls on Parties to the UNFCCC to act now to: (i) reduce greenhouse gas emissions; (ii) prioritise and increase new and additional financing for adaptation; (iii) prioritise the most vulnerable populations and integrate gender in efforts to tackle climate change; (iv) give particular attention to the impacts of climate change on food and nutrition security and smallholder agriculture; and (v) ensure linkages with key global policy processes like the post-2015 Development Goals and the Hyogo Framework for Action.
