Silent crisis: information, decision-making, and communities on the frontlines of climate change

This report examines the often-overlooked lived realities of communities on the frontlines of climate change. It explores the dynamics, challenges, and opportunities for strengthening local information environments in humanitarian contexts, where communities are suffering from unprecedented climate impacts. Global climate discussions tend to focus on timelines to action and statistical thresholds, rather than the immediate impacts already affecting people, particularly those in vulnerable communities. Recent severe climate events have underscored the dire consequences of these changes on both nature and people, resulting in and contributing to humanitarian crises.
