Merkel warns of a worsening humanitarian emergencies around the world

Chancellor Angela Merkel warned in her weekly video message this Saturday of a possible worsening of humanitarian emergencies around the world as a result of current crises such as the pandemic or long-term crises such as climate change.

“We have to assume that both the coronavirus pandemic and climate change will change the situation for many people around the world,” said Merkel, who emphasized the arrival of immediate humanitarian aid.

The explosions in the Lebanese capital Beirut at the beginning of August “have shown terribly how quickly an emergency situation can arise,” said the president.
