Gathering Storm - The humanitarian impact of climate change 3 December 2008: The UN Environment Programme (UNEP), in partnership with the UN/OCHA Integrated Resource Information Network (IRIN), has launched a film series titled “Gathering Storm - The humanitarian impact of climate change.”

The eight short videos highlight the human impact of climate change in

Africa by sharing stories of how adaptation techniques, new and old,

enable vulnerable communities not only to cope but to emerge stronger

and more resilient. The videos highlight desertification, flooding,

rainwater harvesting, malaria, erosion, drought and irrigation. [Gathering Storm]
