By Winnie Byanyima, Oxfam International's Executive Director - Climate change is no longer just coming. It’s here already. In the past five years, more than 650 million people have been affected and more than 112,000 lives lost as a result of weather-related disasters. And the financial cost of this chaos has been immense - almost half a trillion dollars – three times the costs in the whole of the 1970s.
