More Convenings & Project Updates

Research & Modeling

The research and modeling team is well underway developing the concept to move forward with. Working closely with our law firm partner, King & Wood Mallesons, we are further developing international definitions for dignity and imminence in the law to ensure climate-induced migrants have safe and protected options. We are also diving into the modeling of “right to life with dignity” violations in order to support this legal framework. 

Virtual Convenings

Over the past few weeks, we have held virtual convenings with community and youth leaders from Kiribati, Tokelau, and Tuvalu, low-lying, large ocean states in the Pacific region. Their insights have demonstrated both the gaps in current efforts to expand legal protections and ideas for how to move forward. Host countries like New Zealand have a lot to do to not only expand legal protections but to ensure host communities are upholding the rights of those displaced by the climate crisis. 

We also joined the two day CSO consultation run by the Pacific Climate Change Migration and Human Security program. The discussion brought together over 30 CSOs, academics, church leaders, and youth leaders to discuss the big questions around climate mobility. The resounding conclusions were that policy must be inclusive, governments must be held accountable, and cultural heritage must be protected. 

Banaba Case Study

One insight raised in the convenings is that there have been several examples of displacement related to nuclear testing, extractive industries, and climate change in the past century in the Pacific that can be learned from. One of those examples which gives us an important case study in terms of thinking about regional climate migration is the displacement of Banabans from Banaba Island to Fiji, specifically Rabi Island. The legislation, impacts of colonization, and the reflections on the human rights violations against displaced communities make this case study particularly useful when exploring what the “right to life with dignity” means in relation to climate migration. We will be exploring this case study with convening collaborators.
