Pacific Regional Consultation on Internal Displacement
Pacific perspectives and practices on climate change and disaster displacement
Thursday 11 February 2021 | 18:00 - 20:00 FJT / 07:00 - 09:00 CET
Co-organised by the Pacific Resilience Partnership’s Technical Working Group (TWG) on Human Mobility and the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement
Every year, more than 50,000 people in the Pacific are forced to flee their homes due to the devastating impacts of disasters and climate change. The Pacific Small Island Developing States (PSIDS), as among the world’s most disaster-prone countries, bear the greatest displacement risk.
This virtual consultation presents an opportunity for Pacific government officials to exchange their country experiences in addressing climate and disaster-induced internal displacement. Recommendations from the consultation will be submitted to the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement.
