The Nansen Conference: Climate Change and Displacement in the 21st Century

Cicero, Gov. of Norway, NRC

Every year, millions of people are forced on the move due to natural hazards in their environments, many of which relate to extreme weather situations. It appears that climate change is making matters worse by increasing the frequency and intensity of such natural hazards. In the future, we may witness even more treacherous situations as our climate continues to change and long-term effects unfold. If we are to take current and future risks seriously, a closer dialogue between authorities, climate change scientists, devel- opment and humanitarian actors, and policy makers is needed to develop knowledge-based and effective responses.
