Climate Refugees – Climate Change and its Impact on displacement

29. August 2023 (18:00)

The climate crisis is not just about rising temperatures and extreme weather events; it’s about the intricate ways in which these changes affect the ecosystems that sustain human life. Most causes of displacement triggered by climate change, such as flooding, hurricanes, desertification or even the sinking of stretches of land, are not new. However, their frequency and magnitude are increasing. The challenge is to better analyze these causes of displacement, identify the areas where the effects of climate change are most likely to occur and examine the character of forced displacement & movements they trigger. In this session, we will connect the dots between climate crisis-humanitarian-displacement nexus through mapping and narrative analysis. Join us in this interesting talk event and grab the opportunity to learn about the climate change from the displaced lens view.
