Raoul Wallenberg Institute (RWI)
To contribute to a wider understanding of, and respect for, human rights and international humanitarian law.
RWI is involved in two key activities relevant to PDD. The first is a ten-country study of disaster displacement across Asia-Pacific, which examines the role of legal frameworks in protecting people from and during displacement and is based on a locality-specific case study with a cross-cutting gender dimension. The second activity is to provide human rights technical assistance on a large scale, multi-actor research and direct engagement initiative that aims to build resilience through inclusive and climate-adaptive disaster risk reduction in Asia-Pacific. This initiative provides a unique opportunity to raise the profile of disaster displacement within regional DRM activities.
