Refugees are often disproportionately exposed to climate shocks. They also often endure reduced rights, and may have fewer resources with which to adapt. Despite this, little research has been conducted into the effects of the climate emergency on refugees, limitations to their adaptive capacity, and ways of best supporting them in the context of increasing climate-related challenges.

Please join Refugees International and the Center for Global Development for a webinar on this urgent issue, featuring case studies and lessons from experts, as well as potential policy solutions to mitigating harms. An audience Q&A will follow.
