The destination of climate fighters
What is the destination of climate fighters? Aggressive climate change in many countries is emerging in various compilations such as extreme poverty, which is a threat to socio-economic development.
Climate disasters are so devastating that displacement is inevitable. And, the result is truly compassionate for them; climate sufferers depend on their own destiny for they do not find a way to survive.
The disturbing statistics of the New York Times brought out on December 12 that about 26.4 million climate fighters were between 2008 and 2014 only in the horrific risks. In recent years, the dire of climate change is rapidly increasing which is a headache for world leaders.
The mysterious attitude of climate push to be migrants. And, we call them climate migrants
There are many disguised reasons for relocating:
Notorious climate hazards such as long-term floods or droughts always hinder the livelihood of the poor. The climate vulnerabilities like long-term income loss with the devastation of homes in climate-risk areas make pressure for replacing. The story of living under the sky intensely prevails in many cases, the result of the climate disasters presents a crucial reality to find a roof of their head with a meal in a day.
While unethical climate damage forces victims to go on high roads or dams for a temporary shelter, their new shelter promotes a new experience about their socio-psychological trauma that is truly intolerance.
The relationship between climate change and threats is now at its peak in many countries and Bangladesh is one of them. The consequences of climate crime are representing further vulnerabilities to the poor districts in Bangladesh like Jamalpur, Kurigram Sunamganj.
Dependent farmers and small traders are highly suffering from the consequences of climate change across the world. Poverty, starvation, land scarcity have been increasing through climate disasters like river erosion.
The national devastation in Bangladesh is mentioned from those kinds of various typical cyclones alongside the water logging in the southwestern coastal zone which can be an uncountable example between 2000 and 2010.
For example, two mega cyclones Sidr and Aila insidiously exposed dreadful outcomes; there was unlimited jeopardy through arising climate vulnerability such as human losses, agriculture, infrastructure, and massive economic collapse, and near 560,000 employees lost their jobs after Sidr.
A ceaseless process of climate change in light of losses and damages in the agricultural sector. Its route tie has been changed over time which was expressed globally in 2017 and at that time Bangladesh saw a bad time due to flash floods in hoar. Brac had released an assessment report on the extent of crop damage of about around 30,400.83 million BDT.
In many countries like Mongolia, access to climate change is difficult to detect, its types are not like others. Creates more cruelty against surviving in the dry season and extreme winters. Alessandro environmental speaker of Ted Talk said in a video message that more than 8 million livestock had been killed in 2011 in Mongolia.
Another worrying aspect of the climate is that food insecurity with water scarcity in Africa is dangerous. Drought was turned into a famine in Somalia in 2011 and 2017 due to low rain. In many African states still, the people now depend on their wicked fate. People eat leaves as food and a mother is unable to breastfeed for their children for the mother’s weak body.
Displacement is only one way for surviving.
A New platform for climate fighters :
The socio-economic collapse of climate change is doubling the number of migrants, posing a threat throughout the world.
After losing all in the countryside, a city is like a paradise for them because they believe all the opportunities are in metropolitans cities. As a result, urban migrants are increasing day by day.
An upward trend of internal migrants is most noticeable in Asia, Africa, and Central America. According to the World Bank estimates in 2018, global climate hazards in 2017 pushed about 68.5 million people to a new place.
John Podesta, an author said in the “Brookings” in July 2019 that the various roles of climate sent about around 22.5 million to24 million people to another area to make a living which has created overcrowding in their country’s cities.
Dhaka is well-known as a floating city for climate migrants. Documented research reveals that about 400,000 people move to Dhaka every year and almost 70% of people are sufferers of climate disasters. The thought-provoking figure presented by the Brac website depicts that almost 6.5 million people migrate from the seaside till November 2017 that may have threatened future disasters.
International data also say the same; Mongolia is also a climate hazard country. In the countryside, a vast number of shepherds were like nomadic shepherds after the death of their livestock due to winter storms or other natural hazards. Alessandro has described the Mongolian capital as a “Mushroom city” because of its tents.
With climate change, urbanization is spreading around the world where the low-income migrants find shelter in a city but not improved lives. Thus, urban poverty is on the rise.
