The Impact of climate change on displacement and human security


2.00- 3.30 p.m. CEST

The impacts of climate change on natural resources, livelihoods, and vulnerabilities can lead to displacement, worsening living conditions, as well as hampering the return of already displaced people. Despite their vulnerability, refugees, IDPs, and host communities have historically been severely under-serviced by climate adaptation support and excluded from disaster risk reduction strategies and measures.

In responding to climate change and displacement and building long-term resilience, parliaments play a central role. The webinar, co-organized by the UNHCR and the IPU, and supported by PHAP, will discuss the role of parliaments and linkages between climate change, displacement, and human security. The event will feature a presentation by the UNHCR Special Advisor on Climate Action, followed by a dialogue with parliamentarians.

Simultaneous interpretation will be available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish
