Voices of refugees and migrants
Since the beginning of 2015 more than one million migrants, including refugees, fleeing war, persecution, natural disasters and poverty, have travelled to Greece in search of safety and a dignified life in Europe. Lacking safe and legal alternatives, they put their lives in the hands of smugglers.
Oxfam and ActionAid have listened to hundreds of these refugee and migrant women and men to understand why they fled their countries and what their immediate needs are. Our paper presents the key messages that they want European people and their governments to hear.
In the Paris Agreement the business community showed their support for climate action, now this needs to be put into practice.
A new paper and interactive tool present data on the greenhouse gas emissions and water scarcity footprints of 17 food commodities, showing the vital role the food and beverage industry must play in tackling climate change.
