Climate change has become as growing global concern that continues to threaten humanity and increase the vulnerability of many people in society. With changes in climate conditions many people have faced disproportionate challenges in terms of natural disasters, displacement, poverty, inequality, and unemployment which all threaten the security of livelihoods and sustainability of societies. This talk will provide understanding on the impact of climate change on the welfare of societies through a socio-environmental lens.

Navigating Disasters and Climate Change through Humanitarian Shelter Action

George Foden (Doctoral Researcher)
The cost of humanitarian action is increasing year-on-year, and so finding ways to address the underlying causes of disasters and conflict is key to supporting efforts to meet humanitarian need with the limited funding, time, and resources the sector has access to. In line with these concerns, the rise of “resilience humanitarianism” and localisation agendas that focus on community resilience building have seen a move away from traditional response-based humanitarian action towards a longer-term approach.

This talk will cover how the humanitarian sector is changing its actions to try and address the greater need associated with the climate crisis, based on interviews with humanitarian practitioners in Malawi.
