Islamic Relief Policy on Climate Change

The impacts of climate change are not evenly distributed- the poorest countries and people will suffer earliest and most- though they contribute least to green house gas emissions. This is unjust and morally wrong.

Climate change has a huge impact on the work of Islamic Relief. Many of the humanitarian emergency cases we are called upon to address arise from climate-related disasters. Too many people die, suffer or are wallowing in poverty as a result of climate change.

Islamic Relief’s policy on climate change is outlined in this document. It sets out the foundations that underpin the policy, putting it in the context of human development and poverty reduction, followed by a series of key policy messages which IR uses in its programmes and advocates to address climate change.

The objectives of the policy are:

· to provide guidance for the IR family on the role that we can play in addressing climate change;

· to advocate to political forums and external audiences what IR believes the priority issues are, and what should be done about them.
