From the Frontline of Climate Change - Spire;Differ media

 Kisilu Musya is a Kenyan farmer who over the last four years has used his camera to document the life of his family, his village and the impacts of climate change. The film KISILU: THE CLIMATE DIARIES is his story. Spire’s campaign “The Climate Diaries: from the frontlines of climate change” focuses on the people most vulnerable to climate change: smallholder farmers in the Global South. They have contributed the least to climate change but face the harshest consequences. Farmers must be heard — their livelihoods are disappearing and with them the world’s food supplies. The Norwegian environment and development organisation Spire has invited Kisilu Musya to join the COP21 negotiations in Paris in order to present the film “KISILU: THE CLIMATE DIARIES”. Through the campaign Spire urges Norwegian and international bodies to address the climate, agriculture and development in relation to each other. Spire demands a just climate agreement, where perspectives from the Global South are represented and where industrialised countries make clear commitments to support climate adaptation in the South.
