This is the winter of discontent in so many ways for so many people. Without a sharp change of course, we may be heading towards even more deprivations and injustices, warns the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
Some of the countries like Pakistan and Yemen are one of the worst affected by climate change and war in 2022.

Yemen conflict is now in the eighth year and country’s socio-economic systems remain on the edge of total collapse. The impact of the escalating conflict in 2021 and the first quarter of 2022 resulted in increased displacement and further disruption of public services, pushing humanitarian needs higher.
More than 23.4 million people (including 12.9 million children), almost three-quarters of the population, need humanitarian assistance and protection in 2022, an increase of 13 per cent from what was already an alarming figure in 2021. With more than 4.3 million internally displaced people since 2015, Yemen remains one of the largest internal displacement crises globally.
This winter, we aim to assist hundreds of families with their food and energy needs living at Taiz Refugee Camp in Yemen. We provide vulnerable families with winter clothing and one month's energy source.
Since 2020, Muntada Aid has been providing monthly food packs to over 700 people. We have distributed over 1.6 million meals of food at the camp.
The United Nations has issued a new appeal for flood-hit Pakistan to help families and children battle malnutrition, infection and harsh winter. Many families are sleeping in the open in flimsy tents next to homes which were washed away, or have crumbled to rock.
Catastrophic rain linked to climate change has submerged large parts of the country, killing nearly 1,500 people and affecting roughly 33 million people. Homes, roads, railways, crops, livestock and livelihoods have been washed away in the extreme weather event.
With agriculture making up nearly a quarter of Pakistan's economy, officials now say the unprecedented floods may have cost up to $40bn (£35bn). Pakistan's inflation rate was more than 24% before the floods, according to reports, and some costs have climbed by 500%.
This winter are aiming to assist hundreds of families with their food and energy needs in Bannu region of KPK in Pakistan. We are providing most vulnerable families with the winter clothing and one month’s energy source.
Since the start of our emergency floods relief campaign earlier this month, Muntada Aid, with your support, has provided monthly food parcels to over 125,000 people affected by the devastating floods in Pakistan.
