#Regram #RG @aljazeeraenglish: “This is climate chaos - what it actually looks like.” - Tim Gore, Oxfam’s climate policy leader.⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ Oxfam has found that people were three times more likely to be displaced by cyclones, floods or fires than by conflicts.⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ Here are some facts that show how it's mostly poor nations that are paying the price for climate chaos:⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ 1. In Cuba 🇨🇺, nearly 5% of the population has been displaced annually by extreme weather | 📸: Adalberto Roque, @afpphoto⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ 2. In Guatemala 🇬🇹, a six-year drought has devastated crops, bringing poverty and hunger | 📸: Marvin Recinos, @afpphoto⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ 3. In 2018, 3.6% of Somalia’s 🇸🇴 population were newly displaced by extreme weather events and 3.9% were newly displaced by conflict | 📸: Feisal Omar, @reuters⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ 4. The Philippines 🇵🇭 tops the list of countries where people are most at risk of displacement as a result of conflict and extreme weather disasters | 📸: Erik de Castro, @reuters⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ 5. In Pakistan 🇵🇰, repeated droughts and cyclones between 1999 and 2012 resulted in the forced displacement of entire communities. | 📸: Muhammed Muheisen, @apnews⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ 6. After the cyclone in Mozambique 🇲🇿, displaced women often lacked information on their legal rights | 📸: Zohra Bensemra, @reuters⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ 7. Small island developing states such as Tuvalu 🇹🇻 face the highest risk of internal displacement as a result of extreme weather events | 📸: Dave Hunt-Pool, @gettyimages⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ 8. The vast majority – around 80% – of those displaced live in Asia. A single event, Cyclone Fani, triggered the displacement of nearly 3.5 million people in Bangladesh 🇧🇩 and India 🇮🇳 in May 2019 | 📸: @apnews⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ 9. Storms - regular in Sri Lanka 🇱🇰 - are becoming more destructive as warmer waters contribute to higher maximum wind speeds and more rainfall | 📸: Ishara S. Kodikara, @afpphoto⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ 10. Cyclone Idai, which hit Zimbabwe 🇿🇼 this year, mostly affected communities in rural areas with poor road infrastructure and housing. | 📸: Zinyange Aunthony, @afpphoto⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ Read our article with more of Oxfam’s findings in the link in our bio.⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #weather #climate
