Displacement Solutions expect the final text of the Peninsula Principles on Climate Change Displacement to be approved on 18 August. Please check back then for further updates.
In the meantime, this film on climate displacement in the Solomon Islands released by SBS yesterday tells the story of one of numerous communities already grappling with the reality of climate displacement today.
It is our hope that the Peninsula Principles can assist communities the world over who are threatened with climate displacement and form the foundation of laws and policies designed to full protect the housing, land and property rights of these communities wherever they are in the world.
Thanks again for your comments!
