    The UNHCR has established environmental guidelines to prevent deforestation, decreasing water supplies, and disappearing natural food resources, all of which are further exacerbated by climate change. Specific projects include reforestation of in areas surrounding refugee camps, construction of environmentally friendly camp structures, use of energy efficient stoves and lights, and education of refugees. The agency recognizes that refugee populations will be increasing due to forced migration from droughts, tsunamis, etc. It recognizes it will need to “adapt much of its environment-related planning and work to deal with climate change.” Century.
