To make sure that policymakers are reminded of the challenges associated with migration, displacement, and planned relocation, NRC coordinates the Advisory Group on Climate Change and Human Mobility, which is a network of UN Organizations, research institutes, and civil society organizations advocating to keep human mobility at the centre of international deliberations.
These messages were developed by the Advisory Group on Climate Change and Human Mobility, with contributions from other civil society organisations, for the twenty-sixth session of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP 26), Glasgow, Scotland, 31 October – 12 November 2021.
Side event at COP26: "Climate Displacement: Towards a Pragmatic Global Response. Effective practices & perspectives of actors across sectors in regions vulnerable to climate change"
During COP26, NRC is co-organising with partners a side event on climate change and displacement. The event "Climate Displacement: Towards a Pragmatic Global Response. Effective practices & perspectives of actors across sectors in regions vulnerable to climate change" will be held virtually on 6 November 13.15-14.15 Glasgow time, GMT.
Different stakeholders from different regions will come together to present and discuss experiences from various climate hotspots, such as Bangladesh, Egypt, Fiji, Iraq and Syria, to explore untapped opportunities for addressing the challenges ahead and to highlight the importance of multi-stakeholder approach in enhancing resilience of displacement affected people.
