7:36 am
adaptation climate change adaptation is. i mean by this stage has been we are beyond the climate change impact absolutely yes what are you seeing right now that is causing you the most concern. we are most concerned that a large number of people are moving from rural areas to arbonne years but the thing is the whole mindset of the society is that these people are bringing in disease bringing in threat so they are perceived in our been looking instead of looking them as victims of you know climate injustice they are treated as the problem and the whole mindset is that out we can take them into really the years back end and i believe it's i'm just going to pick up where testing that's the tell me so this whole mindset as to changed. let me give our audience an idea of what is
7:37 am
happening right now in some parts of bangladesh where people moving from rural to urban areas have a challenge to this report in january have a listen have a look. mama ching lives in bangor barnhill district in bangladesh she says for years ago villagers here grew an abundance of rice and vegetables and the streams provided fish and drinking water but not anymore she says global warming has changed that. dilute goldie mouli. now it's much more difficult to get water since streams and wells dry up especially in the winter now we have to walk so far to get water losing their traditional way of life many among the tribal population are now moving to supplement to find war. we used to be farmers then but now the environment has changed drastically run able to farm an email telling us to move to the town just to earn a living doesn't i see. something that resonates movie recognize that hinder is not
7:38 am
in cali is not a. first of all the biggest issue that right now with populations on the move yes yes i think so that is the real issue and the main thing is that the policy level we are not looking into it we have to have you know certain policies that would try to. and try to provide them all kinds of services that decent leaving requests and of course population where moving or not i'm a genius you have you know a sex gender and then you have jug reflect location wise you have diverse cities children will have different needs and you know and delis not have others saw a policy that looks into how it is affecting everyone and then coming up how to
7:39 am
make safe and sustainable cities inclusive of new migrants that is the real challenge into i remember oh my goodness 20 years ago i was covering stories about the shrinking of lake chad and how is getting smaller and smaller and the more people doing who this let's have a say so mazing quality of water that just feels so much industry and economics in that area and now it's getting smaller and smaller and smaller so we are seeing right now climate my question what does that look like. in china absolutely when we talk about the climate and i think we add really be fair to eat because you can see exactly how it's happening how people might get from one place to another like do you do they are a source scarcity so like jack who used to be in the night the 60 like 25000 going to. it was just the way my mom good luck in right now
7:40 am
an east blessed that tool 2000 chemically squares sadly you have marked down 40000000 people living in me and you are not as i am coming from past on screen so my people move from one place to another i found like an excuse so that's mean when we have the extreme way that you vents from the floor to get out so it's mean there are sources shrinking in people each and in what they do as this means say they have to leave be rerouted to file in the event so what as we call that in paramedic make a nation of course international let appears not to talk about migration those who jump in the she going to europe but how it goes well and leave you. get into another big city we are getting any other work in then beginning this ask in leaving the woman in the height so. really eerie yelling of migration
7:41 am
in our. chip kelly you know i've noticed i've noticed that richer nations pay attention when michael's turn up on their borders and on their doorsteps that is particularly happening certainly in the southern part of the united states but the north westerly going back to see the root causes let me just play this little clip of a man from honduras he's currently in mexico and the explanation as to why he travels that is have a listen katie and then you can pick up of the back of him. well the truth is i had to emigrate from honduras basically because of what's happening right now in our country with the rain the hurricane it's leaving many people homeless without work and that's aside from the coronavirus pandemic since the pandemic 1st started and now with this we're basically finished nearly every family is becoming homeless losing that business they have nothing that's why the majority of people are coming
7:42 am
to these places because we have nowhere else to go. teddy said united states certainly a mexico s.s. awareness that there are people who cannot they have in their home country and they're on the move but no se the understanding as to why they. think you so much family fare that intriguing interview because i think it speaks to a couple of things. change is not the only driver of may creation as least an underdog acknowledge there's many intersecting things happening there in honduras and that they've had prolonged in for shabbat drought for 6 or 7 years now that made the region very food insecure it's made it very hard to grow your own crops and sustain yourself aren't through traditional range of agriculture and i believe it's a lot of people have migrated to cities but unfortunately kobe 19 pandemic really
7:43 am
was a big economic shock and made it impossible for people to really earn a living and then team these hurricanes don't you know that and they had a detrimental national mikkel impact on certain countries within that region and so really was like the straw that broke the camel's back in many ways and people are leaving their countries out of desperation because they are food insecurity because you know they're surrounded by violence and they have governments that aren't really addressing those deep seeded issues and so really they're just trying to find a safer and dignified life and sometimes that means coming to the u.s. border doesn't have a question for you i'm not going to have the 2nd. act not to wipe that yesterday she said about the food insecurity and now why people believe me i think that exactly giving me an example of you know when they were in the camera or when the reality it's continuously so it be
7:44 am
a man i have been exposed to believe me to feed them family continually in if they cannot feed them families so they need to east and. ok so this is the reason to have to leave the community to go to the big city and most of them when they come in the cd bill is not enough what one of them and that's what i believe these c.e.o.'s to jump to another one in the uk was in the military and when a big guy there and they asked you said believe the woman it can't be any more it's the amount of the climate change now having also be we have a woman who i believe in the communities so food insecurity it's going to be the cleric chant and mickey people losing the beauty so why don't we kind of talk about migration correct what human dignity and we expect for our culture and betty so i think i'm totally i mean we what you said and this is exactly what's happening and get out it doesn't go what i really like i really like bring in this whole issue of
7:45 am
good 19 and climate change in bangladesh especially have seen many of the. the dog food they had to go back to their rural climate affected areas they had to move from there in the 1st place because of you know stresses because of lack of income but one of the event cyclon it gained huge them and if you think of india my russia was again. and the other side and these people it's like a double triple stress and followed by a flood and one story i would like to share about you know how a family was leaving under top of their house roof taking the bed. and then what do you have to do at night david sleeping and it was all flooded and
7:46 am
one of the child just fell down from the bed and in the morning mother didn't find the child anymore so you can see the threat real threat to life is dead so people people will come to i've been years because it is a question of life and let's ask us talk about mitigation ok because we're already in this this this is not it's happening or it's about to happen we are in our climate emergency right now this is a giuliana and and when we move forward let's talk about now what to do with the emergency situation we are in and adriana is a climate justice organizer she has some ideas about tackling the root causes have a listen have a look. and the us has been dealing with several compounding crises over the last year facing a balance at the hands of a narco regime that was imposed after u.s. backed military coup in 2009
7:47 am
a deadly pandemic and the devastating impacts of climate change we cannot ignore the ways that neoliberal and imperialist policies have destabilized our communities and have been a key factor driving force displacement over the years compounded with the impacts of climate change most recently hurricanes at that and hurricane yet that we can see thousands more people who have been displaced climate change for exacerbates existing factors of force displacement and the response to force displacement cannot be to increase border militarization but instead must address the root causes of the problem i know you all have a tank on the us has stopped with caylee ok thanks so much i mean i love it i do and i really put a historical context in lance to the regional migration issues here i mean the us has a responsibility to not just because it's propped up kind of these regimes in the past but because it is the largest global emissions and major overtax right so i
7:48 am
think 1st and foremost the u.s. must reengage in that region which has been very much left behind by transit ministration policies and iran all of its humanitarian assistance plus hurricanes and development aid to get out some of these root causes you know these this hunger issue this ability to eke out a living from a you know tenuous cultural plan but it also requires bigger sea changes here it's not just how much money it's how who gets it who gets it right it should be to communities and households that needed them most not national governments and i think that would be the 1st thing that the u.s. should really really do to address some of these root issues go ahead handy. yeah how many i care about 11 right in line. and today are we aware of what indigenous people like my brothers and sisters what your past if i do not get to see you going to i am getting in the way in them advice and they have to leave
7:49 am
these less and not just like leaving them but leaving going to dentist even going to kind of shop it is kept in the peoples group be a rule its you know because i didn't know right of indigenous peoples limbic our lengthy thoughts and resources and that is what is happening exactly it is this dam like in the sahara yes mike i am i am in causes where like they have to migrate you know i can tell you like my grandma had a problem my mom relief my grandfather back in the family's just a when i get bored too now and gotten more time one place to another way more of that creek times just because of the where act of the resources and have to leave is not picked right so how about going back can really lead back so no need to guess she is very young it is not just some like it condition but each piece absolutely idiotic the u. s.
7:50 am
have this of sponsibility when they come back to the agreement we all clapped them but its have to believe actually responding to the claim might even get to see him responding now and you cannot do where. do you or let that we want to do have the solution now because our people at moving what are we waiting for we do not know where to when the peoples already dying and losing the dentist let me put some of these you have comments to you and guess i'm going to ask you to come back to the very quit and just address them very quickly as they are going to give you this one listen brian sanchez thanks for being part of today's show how many people are being displaced by climate change and how is it expected to rise in the near. that is a tricky question to answer tasmania but i believe. that is used to be pretty good but do you have data now like you know 35000000 people 25035000000 people will be displaced in south asia alone and
7:51 am
bangladesh in a pessimistic situation $13000000.00 people have been displaced and half of it will be climate induced and under the policy should i just want to quickly add that the do along with that at the national level the policies has to be looked into than just not look a level adaptation it has to look at the national strategy and then connectivity and other things large scale green funding suit should come to 3rd world or countries like bangladesh where the overall development scenario is to be developed in such of the that people benefit from that climate induced people also benefit equally from those development india verse and funds are you know located overall development in the country i want to play to the can we still talk about medication which is how how do we get through this a murder and say
7:52 am
a life this is michael michael a gang is thinking about medication what can we do. here is how the world can help avert a climate induced migration disaster in south asia find ways to direct donor support to jobs and opportunities in cities and urban areas so that you don't have as many people depending on the agricultural which is so vulnerable to climate change also find ways to empower and support local and provincial government officials because they are the ones that are saddled with the responsibility of tackling climate change the most also has dialogues and exchanges to try to promote better relations between the countries in south asia because they often don't get along but they need to be able to combat a shared threat and finally the us should integrate climate change mitigation into its main asia policy of indo-pacific policy so we're not going to let michael do the heavy lifting that has mean another idea for mitigation share it with us go ahead briefly. yes i think this whole issue of the centralization is now
7:53 am
important in our part to get 50 development so that may get to do development has to be replaced by 2nd received to development and then you know diversifying wark and job all over because you so that people need people commute but people they don't have to go to a few cities and they leave a very sort of dual updated kind of situation. this is really interesting from andy and he says the people who are most fun of or the ones with little or no influence on the world stage and he doesn't think that young representatives still united nation will help their case you are a young representative you are speaking up for your people what difference are you making. i can when you have wives you can make the difference you can be a young african or young american you have to just to call the right issues so like
7:54 am
personally i know that what is my call to my call is how big the law countries take the responsibilities any foresee would feel and old a greenhouse gases in little to be real they have to do it now and how they can take the responsibility to put a real money in they tell us what the climate adaptation is like my people can not just a little to just a pound them lightly will i wanted to give the speech out of the children who can be in my pocket is what can lend my little weight who can't have because you know not who can pass it through the generations and it's can not as if i am not raising my voice and do not talk one of them and talk to revamp so it is time that all the young woman who had taken the lead at the international level at the man and met all this a quest to become every young for our peoples our peoples cannot continuously make
7:55 am
it kind of chant do not have to front yes we cannot have a visa to go to another place we wanted to have a place in our own country and for the back developed countries must take the responsibility and i now i'm going to give a k. the last word in the last minute of this part of our discussion and that is you have been studying climate like racial for some time now what has changed all we getting better at managing it. i think that there's a couple of realities that both hindu and house need spoke to which is we know with certainty that climate change can exacerbate underlying inequalities of owner guillotines that may induce people to migrate or we know that a lot of that movement be internal we're all to urban nature so we shouldn't be scared of people crossing borders and bombarding the e.u. or that us and so we don't need to invest in order infrastructure the way the trump
7:56 am
administration that we don't need to securitize orders the way that biden administration is currently supplying financing for militaries in the region what we need to do is understand that migration is an adaptation strategy and it's a viable line and we should ensure that when it might get into cities they're friendly and resilience right we also need to just be realistic people are on the move and sometimes that means to cities but sometimes that means across borders and we need to create legal mechanisms to allow that movement to be dignified caylee in tasmania i know we only just got started there's so much more to say but i am going to put a pause for now and we will absolutely come back to you we cannot tackle climate migration in just 25 minutes but we had a good go but we will come by to thank you very much ladies really appreciate you know so the time of a murder c wait continues on the strain in our next episode we're going to be looking at the food that we eat the food that we produce and how that is adding to
7:57 am
climate change and how we can fixate pasta cross the whole ausiello network we are really prime's the climate emergency and telling you the stories that matter have a look. climate change statistics out for me because it is the story of all time to every depends on. where you live. the way we eat to whether or not we can live on a sustainable planet. trying. to protect. the. planet's gotten harder movements have gotten larger and have pushed centrist politicians like joe biden to do something that would have been unimaginable just a couple of years i've come to good not to caught in india to find out how conservationists i'm no coast took on the mining industry to win protected status
7:58 am
for this land the last remaining home in the world of the color leave no spot. i know you're fascinated by that lethal spat you will find out more in the new season of fries which starts this week i'm about to see wait continues on the strain and the next step aside and so watching everybody ok. frank assessments. what exactly you have and what measures that are taking for a situation like a month do you think you could ever get informed opinions is the u.s. thinking military positioning in the middle east or is it just a simple act of reorganizing ministry assets this is a message to the region the united states is rethinking its military posture in-depth analysis of the dates global headlines inside story on al-jazeera. it's a very bleak picture for
7:59 am
a lot of americans out there white supremacy impacts all of these issues you're putting more money into the hands of someone 1st kick the money out of the hands of other workers federal goes to the king of it becomes us versus them this is the deal about constraining your nuclear program the bottom line the big questions on out is they are. the untold stories. we speak when. we come from a police side. no matter where it takes us a pretty so you feel serious you have a minor. in power and impartial tell your stories we are your voice your news your net al-jazeera. and we're going to have a song and working in asia and africa there'd be days where i'd be choosing the editing my own stories in a refugee camp or to know what christine and right now we're confronting some of the greatest challenges that humanity has ever faced and i really believe that the
8:00 am
only way we can do that is with compassion and generosity and compromise because of the only way we can try to solve any of these problems is together that's why al-jazeera is so important we make those connections. jurors begin deliberations in the murder trial of direct shaven a former minneapolis police officer is accused of killing george throwing. goals for justice for floyd protesters demanding showman's conviction he's facing murder and manslaughter charges. either this.
