From 14:00 - 15:30 CEST - Official Programme 

Migration questions increasingly feature in global environmental and climate change policy discussions, a topic seen as a key challenge of today and tomorrow’s global governance, where regional and national frameworks are promoting safe and orderly migration. Integrating local communities and authorities into the decision-making processes through enhancing both the capacity and representation of those most affected by environmental and climate change, is increasingly paramount to creating equitable, sustainable solutions. The session will launch a new draft publication by IUCN CEESP highlighting up-to-date knowledge at this intersection of issues within a conservation context, which includes other species on the move. Contributing authors from a cross-cutting selection of migration, development, humanitarian and conservation organisations will share key takeaways and recommendations from the publication including input from the recent IUCN report on Conservation and Conflict.
