Workshop on Knowledge-Creation and Capacity-Building for Actions in Climate-Induced Migration
It is now widely known that the 21st century will be characterized by changes shaped by climate and global environmental change. Many studies have examined the threats and concerns about climate-induced migration, posing challenges to populations, governments and governance structures. If no action is taken, migration and inadequate reactions to it could put additional pressure on the social/ecological systems and increase their vulnerability and incapability to respond to future stressors.
The workshop aim is to contribute to the enhancement of knowledge production which might improve and provoke actions.

THE HAMBURG CONFERENCE: Actions for Climate-Induced Migration
The goal of the Hamburg Conference is to increase knowledge and management inputs through an intensive learning process of decision-making, action and evaluation. Therefore we invite contributions showing tools and actions to deal innovatively with environmental and climate-induced migration.
Central and final aim of the conference is to collect evidence-based knowledge and experiences and produce an outcome document, along the lines of the Nansen Principles on Human Displacements, thus contributing to setting the future agenda on climate induced migration.
