Climate change is already a driver of human displacement, all over the world. What are we doing about it - in international and local contexts? What should we be doing? With politics at play, does US President Biden’s focus on the issue change the state of play globally? In this panel, experts set out the critical questions and the principles that should guide the answers. Join them in the lead up to the global climate change talks in Glasgow to consider how environmental displacement is challenging us individually, nationally and internationally.
