Climate Change and Displacement Reader (Paperback)

£37.99
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

Official estimates put the future scale of human displacement as a result of climate change at anywhere from 150 million to one billion people. Despite this crisis in the making, few countries or international institutions are adequately prepared to address and resolve this emerging human rights crisis.





This compilation brings together fifty-one of the leading texts on climate change and displacement. It provides a consolidated source and substantive overview of the key issues relating to climate change and displacement, including: the reality of climate displacement; the shape of current and proposed international law on this matter; the institutional and governance framework that will address and respond to this crisis; and an analysis of what a cross-section of governments and civil society organizations are already doing to prepare for and act against climate displacement. This volume is an indispensable resource for academics researching this issue, community and international advocates, officials of the United Nations and international human rights and humanitarian organizations; national and municipal governments as well as all people concerned about the human rights of climate displaced persons throughout the world.

Scott Leckie is Director of Displacement Solutions - a non-profit initiative designed to assist refugees and displaced persons to return and recover their original homes. An international human rights lawyer and global housing advocate, he is recognised internationally as an expert in the field of economic and social rights. He is currently a Visiting Professor at the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia. Ezekiel Simperingham is an international human rights lawyer. Ezekiel is currently based in Bangkok, Thailand as a legal consultant for the international humans rights NGO Displacement Solutions, where he is focusing on the international human rights dimensions of the housing, land and property sector in Burma and the housing and property rights of refugees under international law. Jordan Bakker is currently a student at Monash University Law School, and works as a research associate with Displacement Solutions. He has carried out fieldwork on climate displacement in Bangladesh, Kiribati and Tuvalu.
