Australia’s Torres Strait Islands and Climate Displacement

A new DS report released today explores the effects of climate change and rising sea levels on one of Australia most vulnerable communities. The 47-page report – An Analysis and Recommendations on Applying the Peninsula Principles on Climate Displacement Within States to Current and Future Climate Displacement in Australia’s Torres Strait Islands – examines how the Peninsula Principles could be used to guide local and national law and policy to ensure that the rights of Torres Strait Islanders are fully ensured in the context of ever worsening climate change effects there. The report offers a series of specific conclusions and recommendations on how to improve the prospects of one of Australia’s most vulnerable coastal communities. The full report is available here: Torres Strait Islands and Climate Displacement
