Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg speaks during a meeting with Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change representatives after the launch of a special IPCC report on climate change and land on Aug. 8, 2019, in Geneva. Humanity faces increasingly painful trade-offs between food security and rising temperatures within decades unless it curbs emissions and stops unsustainable farming and deforestation, a landmark climate assessment said the IPCC. Negotiators from 195 countries finalized the most comprehensive scientific assessment yet of how the land we live off affects climate change.

People walk in the street during a hot day in Tokyo's district of Ueno on Aug. 7, 2019. For the second straight summer, a deadly heat wave has gripped Japan, killing an estimated 57 people and hospitalizing 18,347 more over the past week, according to the Japan Times. More than half of those hospitalized were over the age of 65, highlighting the risks faced by elderly people when temperatures climb to dangerous levels. The country’s capital, Tokyo, counted the most hospitalizations, and deaths were reported in 24 of Japan’s 47 prefectures. While the heat wave in Japan has yet to be definitively linked to climate change, it’s likely that it was a contributing factor. As greenhouse gases accumulate in the atmosphere, they trap more heat on Earth, leading to higher general temperatures, and stoking extreme heat events.

People pray at a makeshift memorial for the victims of last weekend's mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, on Aug. 4, 2019. A 21-year-old man was taken into custody following the shooting on Saturday, which killed 22 people, many of them Latino, and left 26 wounded. According to Time, authorities are investigating whether the shooting was a hate crime after a manifesto expressing hatred for the Hispanic community and detailing the dangers of mass immigration, which the shooter is believed to have written, was circulated online shortly after the attack. This week, a spokesperson for Michelle Bachelet, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, told journalists, “We unequivocally condemn racism, xenophobia, and intolerance – including white supremacy – and call on States, not just the US but all States, to take positive steps to eradicate discrimination."

A man sells fruits and vegetables at the market in Tanout, Zinder Region, Niger on August 3, 2019. Tanout's market is one of the biggest markets in the Sahel and serves as a bridge of cultures, economic exchange and ethnic diversity with the confluence of nomadic communities from the dessert as tuaregs and fulanis and the sedentary communities of Southern Niger. In the African Sahel, located between the Sahara Desert and the equator, the climate has long been inhospitable. But now rising temperatures have caused prolonged drought and unpredictable weather patterns, exacerbating food shortages, prompting migration and contributing to instability in countries already beset by crisis. Countries have to rapidly shift to restorative forms of agriculture and dramatically reduce meat production to save the planet from catastrophic climate change, according to a leaked version of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report on land, the Guardian reports. From deforestation to soil degradation to water pollution, food production has become a liability that must be addressed, the report warns.

A young dengue fever patient walks inside the San Lazaro government hospital in Manila, Philippines, on Aug. 7, 2019. An estimated 622 people have died from dengue fever in the Philippines this year, prompting the government to declare a public health emergency on Tuesday. The country’s Department of Health said the Philippines has recorded 146,062 cases of dengue from January through July 20 this year, 98% more than the same period in 2018. Dengue fever is a deadly virus transmitted by mosquitoes that causes extreme flu-like symptoms and pain throughout the body. By declaring a public health emergency, the Department of Health will be able to better mobilize resources and contain the spread of the virus.

It will now be a crime in India for men to divorce their wives by repeating the word "talaq" – meaning "divorce" in Arabic – three times.

According to Jolie, leaders must recognize the root causes of the crisis, provide foreign aid, uphold international law, and reform the immigration system.

Champions and women everywhere deserve equal pay. Today, the US women’s national soccer team was welcomed home with a ticker tape parade in New York City, where signs for equal pay were seen among the crowd. On Sunday, cheers for equal pay rang out through the Stade de Lyon in France after the USWNT claimed its fourth FIFA Women’s World Cup. In that moment, tens of thousands of people echoed the demands of female athletes from around the world and through the decades. That powerful moment, and the 2019 Women’s World Cup competition, which boosted the US national team’s fight for equal pay into the international spotlight, have both passed — but both stood for something much larger. Unequal compensation is just one issue that women in sports face, and the US women’s national soccer team is just one of many teams that’s had to contend with the problem. While the World Cup competition helped the US team gain traction in their fight, the international event also helped female soccer players fighting other battles bring attention — and action — to their struggles.

The bill, which is sponsored by Omar, will ensure that no child is shamed or goes without eating a school lunch due to a lack of money. In the press conference, Omar explained that the bill would ensure that schools don't use identification methods to single out students who can't afford their lunches or publish a list of children with outstanding debts, according to ABC.

Not a single elephant has been poached over the past year in Mozambique’s Niassa wildlife reserve! Previously, thousands of elephants in the reserve were killed for their tusks to feed the underground ivory market, causing the area’s elephant population to decline by nearly 75%. This extraordinary achievement reflects major investments in surveillance and deterrence efforts throughout the park and the swelling of political support for elephant safety that has taken place in recent years.

Audited financial reports from the US Soccer Federation revealed that in the three years after the US women’s soccer team won the 2015 World Cup, the US women's matches generated more revenue than the men's games, according to the Wall Street Journal. Despite their success, on International Women's Day this year, the world’s most successful women’s soccer team demanded better work conditions and equal pay, arguing they’re paid less than male players at the same level.

A Sudanese supporter of Gen. Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo, the deputy head of the military council, holds her national flag as she attends a military-backed women's rally, in Khartoum, Sudan, June 20, 2019. Dagalo said the military has identified the perpetrators of the violent dispersal of a pro-democracy sit-in, which left hundreds dead earlier this month. While the high death toll is only now drawing international attention, Sudan has been in turmoil since President Omar al-Bashir, whose repressive administration ruled for nearly 30 years, was overthrown in a military coup in April after mass demonstrations. Discontent among the Sudanese people leading up to these clashes began last December when Bashir suddenly cut bread and fuel subsidies, upsetting the economy and making many unable to afford adequate food. The Sudanese pro-democracy protesters are mostly the country’s young population. The Sudanese Professionals Association — made up of doctors, health workers, and lawyers — have been handling the organization of demonstrations, but women stood at the forefront of the movement before the violence broke out.

Have you met our newest Global Citizen pup? With an incredible 14/10 rating from @weratedogs, Bodie is now also an internet star! But all the newfound fame isn't holding Bodie back from celebrating Pride Month. He's using his new platform to support the rights of all LGBTI people, and he's encouraging everyone to take action for the LGBTI community. Take action in the link in our bio, or you can also find the link (and more adorable photos of Bodie) at @hellobodie 🌈🐶  (📷: @alexhayden16) #pride #pridemonth #lgbti #gcpups #globalcitizen #stonewall50
