This Guidance on Planned Relocation sets out general principles to assist States and other actors faced with the need to undertake “Planned Relocation” in anticipation of or in response to disasters and the impact of environmental change, including the effects of climate change. The aspiration is that these general principles will be helpful to States and supporting actors in formulating Planned Relocation laws, policies, plans, and programmes. 

This Guidance was developed in a consultative process through a series of meetings between 2011 and 20155 which brought together representatives of States, international organizations, and experts from a wide range of disciplines and experiences.
