The IPCC will be releasing a special report in October, 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, with our evening briefing. Understand the basics of how changing weather patterns and disasters will alter patterns of migration. This briefing looks at what these changes mean for people, governments and civil society.

The briefing will cover:
— 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. Look at where, when and how people might move.
— the latest legal and political responses to climate-linked migration. Explore when and how law and policy might need to change.

Organised by:
The Climate and Migration Coalition – a programme looking exclusively at the links between climate change and migration, and the rights of people impacted.
Climate Outreach – a leading climate change communicators, bridging the gap between research and practice and helping to widen engagement across a broader spectrum of society.
The course will be lead by Alex Randall, a leading expert in climate-linked migration and displacement.
