The measure of success for the Global Humanitarian Forum is simple: Are we making a difference in how the world thinks about humanitarian issues? Two years into the life of the Forum -- our main focus being the human impact of climate change -- this is what we can say:


Weather Info for All: With 19 automatic weather stations installed so far in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, the technical feasibility phase has been completed successfully. Planning for Phase II is underway and will see installation of about 490 automatic weather stations in the East African Community.


Annual Forum: The human face of climate change is now one of the most talked-about humanitarian challenges in the world, and climate displaced migration is high on the agenda, in part because of our first two major conferences. The conferences also launched the Campaign for Climate Justice and the Weather Info for All initiative.


Youth Forum: Young adults from around the world have developed and are implementing new ideas to help people deal with climate change.


Campaign for Climate Justice: The Forum´s ´tck tck tck- Time for Climate Justice´ campaign achieved a global reach and together with its partner tck tck tck campaigns collected 15 million digital pledges of support for a fair, ambitious and binding climate agreement in Copenhagen. The campaign song ´Beds are Burning´, seen by 20 million people worldwide, was the world´s first musical petition and supported by over 60 international music stars and celebrities. The Forum continues the fight for Climate Justice.


Research and Reports: Through our Human Impact Report, the stark human face of climate change became headlines everywhere. Sixteen hundred articles appeared in 140 countries.
