DS Director Scott Leckie gave the opening address to a seminar on climate displacement at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, jointly hosted on 4 October 2018 by DS, LANDac and Utrecht University. The meeting explored ongoing activities to prevent and repair climate displacement and urged governments everywhere, including the Netherlands, to elaborate and strengthen policies designed to better tackle this growing global crisis. As a result of the meeting, DS will host several MSc students to carry out field research in February 2019 in several key climate displacement hotspots including Bangladesh, Fiji and Panama. A report of the seminar is available here: Climate displacement seminar report.
