  1. Noticias del Televisión ABC: Sequía centroamericana crea refugiados del cambio climático

Published on Apr 22, 2021

ABC News’ Matt Gutman reports from Guatemala, part of a dry corridor across a once-fertile region that’s helping to fuel a migrant exodus.

Earth Day broadcast by ABC National News, “Central American drought creates climate change refugees” with a focus on Guatemala. Very interesting and informative to see a village up close and hear from residents about their struggles and reasons for migration. Also important to see the fees paid to smugglers–up to $13,000–and the collateral required–a family’s house or farm. A very high stakes journey and one that, according to the report, up to 60% of villagers plan to make because they see no other option. 

Look up Jocotan on the map; it’s in the department of Chiquimula in the east, surrounded by Zacapa, Jalapa and Jutiapa, bordering Honduras. That’s a dry region of Guatemala to begin with, made more severe by drought, hurricanes and climate change.

  1. Artículo del grupo HIAS , “Hablemos de Cambio Climático y Refugiados,” Nov 21, 2021,

This is the webinar they refer to in the article: “Climate Displacement – The Future of Refugee Protection,”

Puntos clave del artículo de HIAS:

“In October, the Biden administration released a report on climate change and migration which begins to outline options for protection and resettlement of individuals displaced directly or indirectly from climate change.  The report recommends the establishment of a standing interagency policy process on Climate Change and Migration to coordinate U.S. government efforts to mitigate and respond to migration resulting from the impacts of climate change.

“[Naomi Steinberg, HIAS’ vice president for policy and advocacy, notes] that the administration’s report marks the first time a U.S. government has officially recognized climate change and migration. But Rosenn said the report was not enough. “We need the government to deliver, not just produce reports,” she said.

“Last week, from the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Glasgow (COP26), UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi posted on Twitter that responding to human displacement, mass migration, and refugee crises is becoming more difficult by the day. ‘The #ClimateCrisis is making this challenge even more intractable,’ he tweeted. ‘But it can be prevented, if states and their leaders act responsibly, boldly, and together.'”
