Climate Change: How Local Communities Can Build Resilience to Climate Change

Tuesday, April 2nd

Although cross-border displacement affects local communities, international efforts to address it typically take place at the highest levels. How can affected communities make their voices heard in these intergovernmental negotiations?
This week, Ravi and Grant sit down with Walter Kaelin, Envoy of the Chair at the Platform on Disaster Displacement and former Representative of the UN Secretary-General on the Human Rights of Internally Displaced Persons. Kaelin has been at the forefront of these intergovernmental processes, and he discusses how they've sometimes generated solutions - and sometimes been detached from them.

Displaced is a production by the International Rescue Committee and Vox Media. You can read more about this episode in our show notes.
