Le Talk humanitaire – 2nd edition

Water at the heart of climate suffering:
Building sustainable soultions together


After a first edition in December 2022 on the global food crisis, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL’s Talk humanitaire is back on Thursday, November 9, 2023 at the Académie du Climat. “Water at the heart of climate sufferingwill be the central theme. Climate change is hitting hard at populations already weakened by multiple crises. It is therefore urgent to find solutions.


inEgalities reinforced by the climate crisis

For several years now, populations have been facing an acceleration and intensification of the impacts caused by climate change. Today, 3.3 to 3.6 billion men, women and children live in “contexts that are highly vulnerable to climate change”, according to the IPCC (Intergovernmental panel on climate change). Most of them live in developing countries.   

While the climate crisis is a growing preoccupation, raising concerns at all levels, it also contributes to reinforcing inequalities, particularly when it comes to access to water. As a result, it is those populations who participate least in climate change who suffer its consequences most.


A round-table discussion open to all

Solutions do exist, and the second edition of SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL’s Talk humanitaire, “Water at the heart of climatic suffering: building sustainable solutions together, will provide an opportunity to debate them. Open to all, this round-table discussion will bring together novices and experts alike, with a common goal: to take action.    

Experts, researchers and humanitarians will provide insights and solutions to this highly topical issue:

  • Salman Khairalla, raqi environmentalist and founder of the NGO Humat Dijlah, involved in the protection of the Tigris River in Iraq;
  • Aïssa Maïga, director of the documentary film “Marcher sur l’eau” (“Walking on water”);
  • Marjolaine Bos, coordinator of operations in north-eastern Syria for SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL;
  • Jean-Yves Jamin, research agronomist specialising in irrigated perimeters at CIRAD.

This round table will be chaired by Juliette Nouel, a journalist specialising in climate and biodiversity.
