In March 2021, IIED launched the first of three animations in a series on the devastating reality of climate change loss and damage faced by people living in the least developed countries (LDCs).

The first animation focused on the Solomon Islands, and featured the voices and stories of climate activists Gladys Habu and Solomon Yeo.

And this month the film, ‘Untold stories of climate change loss and damage in the LDCs: Solomon Islands’, was nominated for the Charity Film Awards.

 

The subsequent two animations focused on Sierra Leone and Rwanda, telling the harrowing stories of individuals experiencing loss and damage from climate change first-hand.

Since their launch in March, the animations have been viewed by tens of thousands of people around the world and have been screened at New York Climate Week and at COP26 in Glasgow. Those personal stories of loss and damage have been shared on the BBC, in podcasts from IIED, UNDP and more.

The animation is in competition among short films from the English National Opera, Groundwork London, SCIAF (Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund) and the National Theatre, among many others.

Voting in the competition runs until Sunday 23 January, when a shortlist will be made. To get through to the next round, we need votes from members of the public. Help us to continue to tell the story of loss and damage from climate change in the LDCs and to spread the voices of these climate activists far and wide.
