Approximately 10 million people were internally displaced by climate change-linked events in the last six months alone, Reuters reports. With 2.3 million people displaced over the same period by conflict, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies report, released Wednesday, indicates the vast majority of internal displacement is now triggered by climate change. “Things are getting worse as climate change aggravates existing factors like poverty, conflict, and political instability,” Helen Brunt, Asia Pacific Migration and Displacement Coordinator for the IFRC told Reuters. “The compounded impact makes recovery longer and more difficult: people barely have time to recover and they’re slammed with another disaster.” (Reuters)
