Estimates of climate induced migration vary from 25 million to 1 billion by 2050, moving either within their countries or across borders, on a permanent or temporary basis, and it is likely that this number will increase as climate change progresses, affecting people through extreme weather events and longer-term effects. The session aims to highlight the science, economics and politics surrounding the phenomenon of the large scale displacement of communities due to climate change impacts.

Moderator: Nadja Charaby, Head of Unit International Politics and North America, Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung
