A senior European Union (EU) official in the Caribbean said Europe is ready to continue the global leadership on the fight against climate change, including helping the poor and vulnerable countries in the region.
UN response teams that help the most vulnerable people in the world are still largely underfunded, a new status report has revealed.
The funding available to the teams is no match for the record number of people—141 million—who need assistance today.
Record high temperatures are gripping much of the globe and more hot weather are to come. This implies more drought, more food insecurity, more famine and more massive human displacements.
