Submission on human mobility to the 3rd meeting of the Transitional Committee

On August 29, PDD and IOM, on behalf of a large group of human mobility actors engaging in climate change discussions, submitted a contribution to the work of the Transitional Committee. The document focuses on “Implementing the Task Force on Displacement Recommendations through Loss and Damage Policy and Practice”, and is the outcome of the technical consultation of the Task Force on Displacement held in Geneva on July 11, 2023.

The submission analyses the relevance of human mobility issues for ongoing discussions on Loss & Damage, focusing in particular on three priority areas:

  1. Displacement and its impacts need to be accounted for when assessing Loss & Damage and resulting funding decisions and arrangements;
  2. Action and Support on Loss & Damage need to integrate displacement, in order to reduce the adverse impacts individuals, communities and societies suffer; and
  3. All displaced persons and people affected by displacement should have direct access to loss and damage planning, decision-making and funding to ensure effective response.

The priorities (and relevant messaging, guidance and examples, were identified and elaborated by a large group of professionals working with the following organisations: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit; Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre; International Centre for Climate Change and Development; International Labour Office; International Organisation for Migration; International Refugee Assistance Project; Norwegian Refugee Council; Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights; Office of the United Nations Special Adviser on Solutions to Internal Displacement; Platform on Disaster Displacement; Refugee Law Initiative; United Nations Development Programme; United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees; United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security; and the Loss and Damage Collaboration.
