Climate Justice Advocacy
Justice Policy & Research
Population displacement presents one of the most complex human rights challenges created by the climate crisis.
The climate justice research projects focus on community-based climate change adaptation that protects human rights and the environment.
AIJ’s research is cutting-edge, a trusted resource, and spans a broad range of climate justice issues. AIJ shapes public policy on the international, national and state level through compelling research and innovative ideas. We partner with communities for just, meaningful impact to address the climate crisis.
Disaster displacement is one of the biggest humanitarian challenges of the 21st century. Scientists warn that climate change is projected to increase displacement in the future, both internally and across borders. Large-scale displacements have devastating effects on people and communities. They create complex humanitarian and development challenges that call for urgent partnerships and action beyond traditional silos.
The Platform’s mission is to work towards enhanced cooperation, coordination and action in order to improve the protection of disaster displaced persons, including those linked to the effects of climate change. AIJ’s Executive Director is an advisory committee member to provide expert input and strategic advice to the Platform.
