Environmental Refugees

 
Pope Francis links the ecological crisis and forced displacement, pointing out that those forcibly  displaced by environmental degradation and climate change are not protected by international humanitarian law.   Environmental refugees are a new category of refugees who are not effectively assisted by the international community.

Who are the people in your region who have been displaced by environmental degradation or climate change?  What more can be done to ensure a dignified life for them?
