NOOR dedicates September to our Environment

For more than a decade, NOOR Authors have documented our growing climate crisis caused by fossil fuel production and material consumption along with the political forces enabling this planetary catastrophe. Through our work we have also pointed to solutions to help ensure sustainable human presence on this planet. The need for action is urgent.

As world leaders meet in New York City next month and climate actions are planned world wide, we will dedicate the month of September to sharing stories on the environment from our archive and works in progress. Please follow these stories on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

We encourage our media partners, researchers, and our community to do the same.

Alixandra Fazzina | Essay for Tortoise Media on Yemeni Migration

 
Veering round a bend on the rutted coastal road, the truck screeched to a standstill. As the heat of the morning sun pushed past 40 degrees, they found them. Two teenage boys, dead under a tree.

Somalia and Djibouti have long been a kind of springboard for African migrants who want to reach the rich Arab countries via Yemen. Now this human stream intersects with that of the war refugees from Yemen.

Under Arabic graffiti that reads “You cannot search for the beauty of love, it comes to you” armed fighter jets have been drawn on the opening of a canvas tent in Obock Camp. Sketched by Yemeni refugee Mohamed Al Abid, the drawings depict the bombing raids in Taiz from which he fled with his pregnant wife.

 Congo DR, Kasai Central, Luemba, 16 March 2018

A field outside of Luemba that has been slashed and burnt. Despite the conflicts and the destruction of many fields in 2016 and 2017, people who have returned to their homes started planting again and although malnutrition is still a problem, people are finding solutions to find food. Central Kasaï Province.
