Background

"These are the people who did the least to cause climate change, yet they stand to lose their homes, their jobs, and even their lives because of the growing impacts of climate change.  That is why I have asked the UN system to put together a package of initiatives to address this urgent need."

Former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon
