When two of the most contentious policy debates collide – climate change and displacement – how can we build support for those most affected? Who gets a voice? Can we expect meaningful commitments at the COP26 negotiations in Glasgow, and what might happen next? With first-hand insight from international negotiators, activists and affected communities, this panel will interrogate ways to build understanding and promote empowering policies for a humane way forward.

In this special panel session, you'll hear from: 

Nisreen Elsaim, UN Secretary General's Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change

Alex Randall, Climate and Migration Coalition

Koko Warner, UN Climate Change (UNFCCC)

Martijn Wilder, Pollination Group

Chair: Linh Do, Head of Campaign Networks, Climate Catalyst

This special session is part of the Kaldor Centre's Virtual Conference 2021, ‘Whose move? Addressing migration and displacement in the face of climate change’ from 19 to 21 October. For more information visit:
