UN Tackles Havoc Wreaked by ‘El Nino’ and ‘La Nina

The UN agencies’ efforts to help more than 60 million people affected worldwide by the climate cycles expose weaknesses in local and international systems

The United Nations (UN) agencies’ efforts to help more than 60 million people affected worldwide by the climate cycles are exposing weaknesses in local and international systems.

The newly-appointed UN Special Envoy on El Niño and Climate ambassador, Macharia Kamau, points out that, “The new pattern of climate events [better known by their Spanish designations, El Niño and La Niña] is exposing weaknesses in our preparedness, in international and government systems and in community infrastructure.”

UN secretary general Ban Ki-Moon appointed ambassador Kamau (Kenya’s permanent representative to the UN in New York) and Mary Robinson (former President of Ireland, former UN high commissioner for human rights and founder of the Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice) as his Special Envoys on El Niño and Climate in late May 2016.
