Planning to relocate communities due to disaster and climate change is always a last resort, but it is a reality in a region like the Pacific where thousands of people are likely to be forced from their homes due to climate change and sea-level rise.

Displacement of people has been described as one of the greatest humanitarian challenges of the 21st century, and with increasing frequency and intensity of weather events caused by climate change, displacement is only projected to increase.



In this CID Talk, Finau Heuifanga Leveni from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), discussed laws of planned relocation in the context of disasters and climate change.
