A meeting on climate change is being held in New York, hosted by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres. Other world leaders will also attend Monday’s meeting.
Boris Johnson will host the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland in November. Boris Johnson will urge participants to “reduce carbon emissions in the countries concerned, especially the use of coal.”
Last week, Abdullah Shahid, the Maldivian foreign minister and the new president of the UN General Assembly, told Arab News that climate change would be one of the most important issues of his presidency.
And it should, because the Maldives is the lowest in the world. Due to this position, the Maldives is at risk of rising sea levels as a result of global warming.
Millions are also at risk of being displaced by the effects of climate change.
According to a report published by the World Bank earlier this month, if action is not taken against climate change, 21.6 million people are at risk of becoming homeless by 2050.
That’s 20 times more people displaced by the civil war in Syria.
If we talk about North America, according to the report of the World Bank, the displacement due to climate change could deport 1.9 million people from there. That is more than the total population of Tunisia.
The World Bank says these people will be displaced for other reasons, including rising sea levels and a lack of access to fresh water.
Climate change could turn the tide on all efforts to end poverty, reduce child mortality, and promote education and development.
Farzina Banaji, head of communications for climate change at the World Bank, told Arab News that there was still time to work to prevent the dangerous effects of climate change, but that time was running out. Is happening
Trollz Heidegard, an associate professor of migration studies at the University of Albuquerque in Denmark, told Arab News that according to his research, those who migrate due to climate change in Northern Europe are given priority over those who are personal. Leave the country for reasons or civil war.
“However, those (migrants due to climate change) are more welcomed than those who leave the country for economic reasons.”
