The climate negotiations have been a key forum for addressing climate-linked displacement. What will be achieved at this year’s talks? And what progress has been made since last year?

The Paris climate talks were a break through. As well as creating a global deal to reduce emissions, they also committed governments to action on human displacement linked to climate change. The COP climate talks now join a raft of other international process that have the potential to help people who are forced to move by climate impacts. This online workshop will look at what progress has been made in the year since the historic agreement in Paris, and explore how these climate talks fit in with the other international processes.

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 session will be lead by Alex Randall, a leading expert in climate-linked migration and displacement.
