Policy Brief: COP 27 and climate-related migration and displacement

By USCRI October 31, 2022

This November, delegates from countries and organizations around the world will convene for the annual Conference of the Parties, or COP, conference on climate change. Since Glasgow hosted last year’s COP 26, climate-related disasters have continued to exacerbate existing inequities, upend economic activity, and pose broad threats to a more secure and sustainable future for communities across the globe. Climate-related displacement is fast becoming one of the most visible, wide-reaching consequences of a warming planet.

This report will analyze what to expect in several key areas of climate policy at COP 27—including mitigation, adaptation, early warning systems, loss and damage, and climate finance—and how these areas relate to the displacement caused, at least in part, by climate change. The report will also offer recommendations on how nations should approach COP 27 with an eye toward strengthening protections for communities and individuals vulnerable to climate-related displacement.
