VIDEO: Lindsey Fielder Cook talks about our Human Impacts of Climate Change programme

In this video, excerpted from a longer film shown at the Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC) World Plenary Meeting held in Peru in January 2016, Lindsey Fielder Cook discusses the work of our Human Impacts of Climate Change programme.

The Quaker United Nations Office is concerned about the impacts of climate change on people’s lives, and works to ensure that the rights and dignity of all are upheld while emphasising the need for urgent action. We contribute towards this by emphasizing the human impact of decisions made at the international climate negotiations, collaborating with civil society and engaging with the latest climate science, and exploring linkages between climate change and our other areas of expertise, such as human rights, food policy and peacebuilding.
