IRIN  films, in partnership with UNEP  (UN Environment Programme) is launching the first of a series of short films on the human cost of climate change, to mark World Environment Day on June 5. 

 

IRIN said the three-minute films tell how different communities around Asia are being affected by climate change and what they're doing about it. "The stories are beautifully shot and pass simple but strong comment on affected communities," IRIN said.

It appealed for similarly motivated organisations to either co-host or put up links to the films on their sites. They can be viewed at http://www.irinnews.org/filmtv.aspx

IRIN (Integrated Regional Information Networks) is part of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, but its services are editorially independent. Its reports do not necessarily reflect the views of the United Nations and its agencies, nor its member states.
