The Executive Committee (Excom) of the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage (WIM) established the Task Force on Displacement in March 2017 to develop recommendations for integrated approaches to avert, minimize and address displacement related to the adverse impacts of climate change, in accordance with their mandate outlined in COP Decision 49, adopted at the twenty-first Conference of the Parties (COP21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held in Paris in 2015.
On behalf of the Task Force on Displacement, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Platform on Disaster Displacement (PDD) organized a Stakeholder Meeting on “Recommendations for integrated approaches to avert, minimize and address displacement related to the adverse impacts of climate change”. The meeting brought together the Members of the Task Force as well as key stakeholders working on the human mobility and climate change nexus. The aim of the meeting was to take stock of progress under the different areas of the Task Force's workplan and inform the development of the integrated recommendations that will be presented at COP24 in Katowice, Poland. The meeting was organized with the financial support of the Federal Government of Germany.
