Climate Change and Human Mobility

Climate change and its impact on vulnerable populations are too significant for any one actor to solve alone; private-public partnerships are essential to meet this global challenge.  

This event aims  to foster collaboration across UN agencies,  research institutions,  philanthropic organizations, and the private sector to lay the foundation for a healthy, more resilient future for all.  

Envisioning a climate-resilient world means planning beyond immediate economic recovery and investing in a sustainable future that accounts to minimize the suffering of the most vulnerable communities.
