We are looking at displacement due to climate change impacts not just migration as a choice - Bangladesh High Commissioner at @cdknetwork debate
We want to look at migration as a solution to climatechange, not what happens to victims - Dominic Kniveton at @cdknetwork debate
Glad to have you, Atle. We'll get going in just a few moments.....
Welcome to our hour-long debate on migration policy and climate change! I can see our experts are online and ready for your questions, so let's get going.....
Throwing in a couple of questions that came in earlier:
For Atle Solberg: what are the main protection problems for those who flee because of disasters and climate change? How can policy makers assist?
For Koko Warner: would it be helpful to get issues of human mobility and displacement into the Hyogo Framework Agreement? If so how?
Also (general question): What is the best plan/strategy for the Philippines to address disaster-induced #climatemigration post-Typhoon Haiyan?
And another question from earlier: I would like to know whether assisted migration figures anywhere in the policies being developed?
I'm hearing from discussion today on migration at ODI that focusing on women and their migration decisions will be key - often because they have fewer choices and can be more tied to land and family at home
One issue that people often want to know is how many climate migrants will there be in future? Dominic, you came up with some interesting projections on this at the ODI debate earlier. Could you drop those into this debate for us, please?
