100. Climate Migration

Lördag 11 november 2017 11:30 - 12:30 Konferensrum 13

Paneldeltagare: Clarisse Kehler Siebert, Frank Barber, Matthew Scott

In an era of climate change, disasters are the new normal, with recent examples from Hurricane Harvey in Texas and the severe monsoonal rains in South Asia confirming that both the richest and poorest countries in the world face massive challenges as extreme weather events become more common in a warmer world. But although climate change can certainly make things worse, disasters themselves are social phenomena that result when natural hazards like cyclones or storms meet vulnerable and exposed communities. This panel discusses this new normal, with a particular focus on migration as both a consequence of climate change and as an effective adaptation strategy to it. It considers what kinds of measures are being taken, and asks what role human rights thinking plays in the response.
