Pacific regional consultation on internal displacement: Pacific perspectives and practices on climate change and disaster displacement

Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre

Co-organised by the Pacific Resilience Partnership’s Technical Working Group (TWG) on Human Mobility and the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement

Every year, more than 50,000 people in the Pacific are forced to flee their homes due to the devastating impacts of disasters and climate change. The Pacific Small Island Developing States (PSIDS), as among the world’s most disaster-prone countries, bear the greatest displacement risk.

This virtual consultation presents an opportunity for Pacific government officials to exchange their country experiences in addressing climate and disaster-induced internal displacement. Recommendations from the consultation will be submitted to the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement.

Time: 18:00 - 20:00 FJT / 07:00 - 09:00 CET
