There's a new type of refugee emerging in many parts of the world - climate refugees. These are people whose livelihoods are so affected by the very real impact of climate change that they must move from their homes. Can we please stop being in denial and get something done here???

IKEA recently collaborated with UNHCR to design a new type of refugee shelter (flat packed, naturally). Although the design costs twice as much upfront, it lasts far longer than the tents that are currently in use (which must be replaced every six months), and is ultimately a cheaper solution. It also offers better temperature control, solar energy for light in the evening, and a little more privacy for the inhabitants. While it’s perhaps not a “home”, it’s a pretty good alternative.
