The Hydropoliticss Academy of Ankara – Turkey organized an International Webinar on 21st Century ,Climate Change and Migration on 3 June 2021 The webinar covered the following topics:
Even if the majority of this migration is internal, there are still severe gaps in the international protection on a regional and international level which need to be adequately addressed. So it is worth to ask that what has hindered the international community from responding to the challenge?
The increasing environmental challenges humanity is facing are globally recognized today. Migration is one of the adaptive solution for those affected by environmental degradation. Due to its geographical and socio-economic specificities. Some countries are particularly exposed to environmental pressure and consequent human mobility, both directly, through the impacts on its population and economy, and indirectly, through the impact on neighboring societies.
Policymakers also need to be empowered at the national, local, or regional and international levels to be able to address the complex nexus of migration, environment and climate.
The webinar aimed to raise awarenes to minimize forced and unmanaged migration as much as possible.In this perspective, Hydropolitics Academy Webinar on “21 st Century Climate Change and Migration” aims to bring together high level experts to raise awarenes about the relation between migration and lack of sustainable water management and Climate adaptation policies
