Shelter From the Storm: Seeking Dignity in the Age of Climate Migration
Climate migration is a daily reality in all parts of the world and a global challenge for the international community. In 2018 alone, more than 17 million people were forced to leave their homes due to disasters, such as floods, droughts or storms. Looking ahead, science warns us that if we don’t take action now, many more people will be on the move due to climate change impacts in the upcoming decades.
This event brings together international experts and practitioners working on climate change and migration. They will discuss what can be done to help people and communities around the world face this perfect storm now and in the future.
This event is part of the Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Change program of Climate Week NYC.
