How climate resettlement can work for communities: Climate change and planned relocation

Source(s):  Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS)

This policy brief provides recommendations to governments and practitioners on the use of planned relocation for communities affected by climate change.

Governments and practitioners should:

  • Approach relocation from a wider resilience perspective. Employ flexible solutions to land and other resource access based on people’s own livelihood strategies. 
  • Ensure that relocation is driven by real needs, not political interests. Support checks and balances in decision making to prevent unwarranted relocations.
  • Support fora for conflict resolution and expression of grievances. This includes statutory fora but also alternative mechanisms.
