Untold Stories Of Climate Change Loss And Damage In The LDCs: Sierra Leone

In a series of animations, people from the least developed countries (LDCs) share their experience of climate impacts. This video, the second in a three-part series, relays the devastating loss and damage caused by climate change, experienced first-hand by people of Sierra Leone’s capital, Freetown. This animation features Sierra Leonean UN climate negotiator Gabriel Kpaka, who explains the reality of living in constant fear of mudslides and landslides destroying homes, or of contracting cholera or typhoid as drinking water is contaminated by floods. He also urges national and international climate policymakers to recognise that loss and damage from climate change wrecks lives and livelihoods. The short film is also available in Sierra Leonean Krio: https://youtu.be/ZDBuP7TrC8s Read the full story on IIED's website: https://www.iied.org/pushed-past-copi... This animation was produced by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) with The Like Minded.
