Climate change affects human rights in numerous ways. One of the impacts is forced migration due to rising sea levels, drought, flooding and food scarcity. And the most vulnerable suffer the most. Scott Leckie is the Founder and Director of Displacement Solutions. He is an international human rights lawyer, academic, author, social entrepreneur, environmentalist and recognized as one of the world’s leading global housing, land and property (HLP) rights experts.
Displacement Solutions (DS) works with climate displaced persons, communities, governments and the UN to find rights-based land solutions to climate displacement. In this seminar Scott Leckie describes how Development Solutions has taken human rights work one-step further from merely blaming governments for human rights abuses, to also solve situations where forcibly displaced people have lost their homes.
