Ethiopia: Fear and lack of farming supplies risk severe long‐term food shortages by International Committee of the Red Cross, 6/6/21
Agriculture is the primary source of livelihood in rural Tigray. However, climate and soil in this mountainous area pose significant challenges to farmers, who heavily depend on fertilizer to boost food production. Since armed violence flared up last November, agricultural seeds and subsidized fertilizers on credit from cooperative unions, vital for growing crops in the region, have been unavailable.
At the same time, an estimated one million displaced people have been relying on the support of the host communities who shared their already limited resources and whose food stores are running dangerously low. Many farming communities suffered from looting that further undermined their ability to produce food.
A recent analysis by the ICRC of the food security situation in the region found that families who now can afford to eat two meals a day may soon be forced to eat only one per day. The violence in the region, aside from affecting the agricultural cycle, is also making it difficult for families to find additional work to help them afford more food.
What’s next for Israel and Palestine? By Pip Cook, 6/6/2021

European countries were split by the vote, with Austria, the United Kingdom and Germany voting against an open-ended inquiry. “An investigation with such a mandate risks hardening positions on both sides and moves further away from a lasting solution,” said the UK representative. France and the Netherlands abstained.
But Khalil Hashmi, Pakistan’s UN ambassador, who proposed the resolution along with the OIC, argued that the panel was essential to hold Israel accountable for what he called “decades of human rights violations” in the region.
The latest fighting between Israel and Hamas in Gaza this month was the third war between the two sides since 2008, although there have been countless outbreaks of violence in between. Israeli airstrikes on Gaza killed some 250 Palestinians, including 66 children, and Hamas rocket fire into Israel claimed the lives of 12 people, including two children. Speaking at the opening of the Human Rights Council session, UN rights chief Michelle Bachelet said attacks by Israeli forces on Gaza earlier this month could constitute “ war crimes” if found to be disproportionate and indiscriminate”, and that Hamas had violated international humanitarian law with “ indiscriminate” rocket fire into Israel.
As more climate migrants cross borders seeking refuge, laws will need to adapt by Katharine M. Donato, Amanda Carrico and Jonathan M. Gilligan for the Conversation, 6/13/21
The Biden administration has started exploring ways to identify and assist people who are displaced by climate change. But climate‐driven migration is complicated.
Often, the environmental stressors associated with climate change are only one factor pushing people to migrate. For example, many migrants from Guatemala trying to enter the U.S. have struggled under severe droughts or storms, but many also fear crime and violence if they move to cities in their homeland to find work. Others are seeking opportunities that they and their children don’t have.
As experts in migration and climate risk, we have been studying how climate change is displacing people within their own countries and often pushing them to cross borders. Here are some of the key challenges the Biden administration faces and reasons this effort can’t wait.
