The IPCC has released a special report looking at what 1.5 degrees of warming will mean for the world. Our briefing will reflect specifically on the report’s findings on climate-linked migration and displacement – and discuss their wider implications.
Get to grips with the complex relationship between climate change and migration at our evening briefing, and what it means for people, governments and civil society.
The briefing will explore:
- the science of climate change and how altered weather patterns and disasters will change migration.
- Examine the kinds of migration that might result from climate change impacts - where, when and how people might move.
- the latest legal and political responses to climate-linked migration - when and how law and policy might need to change.
Where and when?
