This report was launched to coincide with the recent COP27, UN Climate Change conference in Egypt. The full report title is ‘Missing in Climate Action: Stories of persons with disabilities from the Global South’. It shares the experiences of people with disabilities affected by the climate crisis in Madagascar and Bangladesh, and highlights that people with disabilities can play a significant role in tackling the climate crisis.
The report looks primarily at the impact on livelihoods, health and wellbeing and only mentions education in passing. But we’re sharing it because it offers an important look at how climate change affects the most vulnerable.
Climate change is an urgent issue none of us can ignore and we call on our readers to write about and share experiences and ideas relating to climate change and inclusive education. You write it, we’ll share it!
