Climate refugees in South Asia need protection, advocates say | Reuters

By Sebastien Malo NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - People forced to leave their homes because of climate change in South Asia should get the same protections given to political refugees, advocates said on Thursday.Governments in South Asia have failed to address the climate migration of millions of people, uprooted by cyclones, flash floods and other disasters, said a report by the non-profit groups Climate Action Network - South Asia, Bread for the World and ActionAid.The region's eight nations - Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka - should adopt a treaty and policies to help protect climate refugees, said Harjeet Singh, a spokesman in India for the South African-based ActionAid.The eight nations comprise the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), whose most recent diplomatic summit was postponed indefinitely this year amid tension between India and Pakistan."We share a common ecosystem, and we share common mountains, rivers, history and culture," Singh said. "When these solutions need to be devised, we have to have common solutions." SAARC should have policies under which people crossing borders due to environmental crises are recognised as refugees, he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.Refugees have an array of rights and protections under international law overseen by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, created following World War Two. #India #Bangladesh #Afghanistan #science #Climate #Entertainment #homes
