Description:
Migration caused by climate change is a reality experienced every day in different parts of the world.  Where do we stand on this critical issue? This event will review the current policy and legal status of climate change migration, mostly at the international level.  In addition to focusing on the impacts, drivers, and transit patterns, the event will provide an overview of the relationship between global health, migration and climate change.  Possible solutions to prevent or limit migration caused by climate change will also be presented with examples of technologies that could address certain issues resulting from climate change. 

A review of the current legal immigration framework will be presented underlying the insufficiency of the existing legal tools and possible options.  Thereafter, current policy and strategic aspects of climate change and migration (e.g. Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration) will be exposed, including thoughts on the necessity to involve all essential actors.  This event aims to raise awareness regarding the issue of climate change and migration and assist the audience in brainstorming possible ways to tackle the critical issue through their actions.
