Experts predict that by the middle of this century, the mass displacement of people due to climate change will be the largest refugee crisis in history. The international community will need to have a humanitarian response in order to address these intersecting issues.
However, the term ‘climate refugee’ doesn’t exist in international law, and people displaced by climate events often do not fit within the definition of ‘refugee’ under the 1951 Refugee Convention.
How will we handle the challenge of climate refugees? Join Tim Flannery, Jane McAdam and Anwar Mohammed to discuss how we prepare for a future where people around the world are displaced due to climate change.
Wednesday 25 November
