A Collaborative Exhibition on Disaster Displacement
19 Apr 2021, 00:00am
The Earth's climate is changing. We are all witnessing the temperature rise, sudden-onset emergencies such as heat waves and floods growing in frequency and severity, and slow-onset hazards such as drought and rising sea levels intensify. Since 2008, an average of 26.4 million people have been displaced by disasters every year which is equivalent to one person every second.
The Migration, Environment and Climate Change (MECC) Division of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) therefore warmly welcomes HNPW participants and visitors to this virtual exhibition area on Disaster Displacement during the Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Weeks (HNPW) 2021 (19 April-7 May 2021) that is co-hosted by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
We invite you to explore this collaborative space, get to know our network and activities and read our most recent research contributions from our close partnerships and key partners in the humanitarian field on this topic: the Platform on Disaster Displacement (PDD), the UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency) and the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC).
We hope you enjoy browsing our booth and find our material instructive and stimulating!
