Refugee Resilience: Responding to Climate and Conflict-Induced Displacement

Wednesday, May 8, 2024
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM PDT

Despite decades of international efforts to protect refugee rights, the global refugee crisis persists. With over 110 million individuals displaced by late 2023, urgent action is needed to address this complex challenge. This session will examine how the escalating impact of climate change and regional conflicts fuel mass migration and displacement, and will explore strategies to improve preparedness and response. Join us to learn from leading voices actively engaged in designing and implementing the necessary infrastructure to provide much-needed relief and much-deserved peace for refugees and displaced persons worldwide.
