WHAT IS THIS GUIDE ABOUT?

The aim of this guide is to provide practical, easy to follow advice on what people displaced from their homes and lands by climate change can do to get help. It is written directly for climate displaced persons and their advocates.

It explains in non-technical language what climate displacement is, what rights you are entitled to as a climate displaced person, and what you can do to protect your rights.

It also gives examples of how climate displaced people around the world have organised themselves to obtain help from the authorities in their countries.

To achieve climate justice, communities affected by climate displacement must organize themselves, and individually and collectively claim, assert and enforce their rights.
