All public servants at all levels



In 2022, an estimated 32 million people globally were displaced by floods, storms, droughts, wildfires and other weather-related disasters, leading to an increase in human migration around the world. The new challenges arising from this growing level of climate-related migration and displacement directly affect public administration at all levels of government.

This first event in the series highlights key facts about the impacts of climate change on human migration and displacement, along with important considerations for public administration and governments when responding to climate change events.

Participants will gain a better understanding of the complex connections between climate change and global migration to assist them with their short- and long-term strategic and operational planning.
