Day 9 at Copenhagen: Climate refugees, the first victims of climate change

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2009-12-15

With government ministers taking part in the discussions, there was a change in pace at the Copenhagen summit Tuesday. But will it be enough for refugees of climate change?

From Day 1 through to Day 12, FRANCE 24's correspondents at the Bella Centre uncover the real issues stirring the debate at the Copenhagen summit on climate change.

From Papua New Guinea to Tuvalu to Uganda, climate change refugees have come together in Copenhagen to demand action. They are the first and possibly the worst affected victims of global warming and scientists warn that their numbers could rise unless there are drastic cuts in emission standards. Currently, there are 50 million climate refugees, according to UN estimates.
