Better Legislation - The concept of Climate Refugee SL
Event date: 30/06/2020
Climate change has forced people to leave their territory and has led to the term ‘climate refugee’. Climate change also means that in the future, more people are expected to become climate refugees. International protection for these people is lacking, but various international organisations are paving the way to incorporate climate refugees into legislation. The EU has expressed its concern about climate refugees, and is taking proactive steps in order to ensure better protection for them.
