COP24 side event: Recommendations of the Task Force on Displacement

Every year, millions of people are forced to leave their homes due to floods, tropical storms, droughts, and other climate-related changes. Following COP21 in Paris, the Executive Committee of the Warsaw International Mechanism established a Task Force on Displacement to develop recommendations to avert, minimize and address displacement in the context of the adverse effects of climate change.

After two years of compiling evidence, conducting studies, identifying effective practices and consulting stakeholders through the Task Force, the Executive Committee presented the recommendations to Parties for their consideration.

Against this backdrop, the Task Force on Displacement held a side event at COP 24 to discuss how the international community can support solutions to some of the key challenges of displacement related to the adverse effects of climate change and forge a comprehensive approach to preempt, plan for and address such displacement.
