The German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and the Robert Bosch Stiftung cordially invite you to a panel discussion on climate-induced mobility in the run-up to COP27.
More migration – not less – is needed to adapt to climate change. While this is increasingly recognized, commensurate international action has yet to be taken. At COP27, where adaptation will be high on the agenda, it is inevitable that migration, too, will feature in the discussions. Together with our panelists, we will assess what progress could be made there in the field of climate and migration. We will then look beyond the international negotiations to discuss how these advances can be implemented.

Raphaela Schweiger, Program Director Migration, Robert Bosch Stiftung
