Adaptation and the UNFCCC: A Glimpse Behind the Curtain

Under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, countries have been meeting in formal negotiations at least twice each year since 1992. From the outside (and even from the inside!), progress can appear achingly slow at these meetings. Despite this, there have been significant successes, particularly on the issue of adaptation.

Environmental refugees… the next wave?

One million migrants arrived in Europe in 2015 seeking asylum from war and conflict. Yet many researchers warn these numbers are small compared with the number of people who will be displaced global in coming decades because of climate change. Will the next great waves of international migration have environmental causes? What are the potential implications for North America? What can we do now to prepare for future climate migration? Join Canadian and American experts in an open discussion of what we know about global environmental migration, and what research has yet to tell us.
