Frontline communities bare the brunt of the climate crisis

In this special episode of Upwell, we chat with Ambassador Carlos Fuller, Permanent Representative of Belize to the United Nations and Vice President of the Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Show Notes

In the conversation, we discuss the impacts of the climate crisis in Belize and across the Caribbean — from rising sea temperatures bleaching coral reefs and devastating fisheries, to coastal erosion forcing the displacement of coastal communities — and address the urgent need to implement the Loss and Damage Fund.

You can find updates from AOSIS on their website, and the UNFCCC on their website. Take action
