The Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace awards grant to CLIMATE REFUGEES

January 10, 2019

We are honored and grateful to receive an unrestricted award of $10,000 from the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace (CSJP), through The Philanthropic Initiative, to support CLIMATE REFUGEES’ work documenting global climate displacement.  Climate Refugees’ report on the Lake Chad Basin garnered global attention from the UN International Organization for Migration (IOM), Columbia University, Copenhagen Institution for Interaction Design, Tel Aviv University and many more with CR founder Amali Tower speaking to media, including on radio to Voice of America, podcast with Earth Matters, Weather Channel and numerous press briefings and invitations to speak at academic and UN panels. With the support of CSJP, our next field report will examine the impacts of climate change on migration and displacement in the Horn of Africa.

CLIMATE REFUGEES thanks the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace and The Philanthropic Initiative for this immense support.
