The impacts of climate change on natural resources, livelihoods, and vulnerabilities
can lead to displacement, worsening living conditions, as well as hampering the
return of already displaced people. Despite their vulnerability, refugees, IDPs, and
host communities have historically been severely underserviced by climate
adaptation support and excluded from disaster risk reduction strategies and
measures.

In responding to climate change and displacement and buildling long-term resilience,
parliaments play a central role. They ensure that treaties and commitments are
translated into national legislation and that adequate budget allocations are made to
support local adaptation activities and implementation of climate change and
disaster laws and policies.

Join us for a webinar on 21 September, co-organized by the UNHCR and the IPU,
and supported by PHAP, in which we will discuss the the role of parliaments and
linkages between climate change, displacement, and human security. The event
will feature a presentation by the UNHCR Special Advisor on Climate Action, drawing
on UNHCR’s first ever Strategic Framework on Climate Action, followed by a
dialogue with parliamentarians to create an open space for sharing of information
and good practices.
