Falling Through The Cracks: A briefing on climate change, displacement and international governance frameworks

  • Publication Date  2014-12-10
  • Type  Report

Falling Through The Cracks is intended as an overview of the legal and policy frameworks governing climate-induced displacement at the international level.

It aims to inform policymakers and interested individuals about the range of relevant legal and policy instruments and to assess how effective these various options are at responding to the issue of climate-induced displacement.

EJF's briefing highlights the lack of adequate legal and policy frameworks governing climate-induced displacement at the international level. It finds that the 'protection gap' is more like a series of holes, suggesting the need for a new global framework which is both broad in scope and sufficiently sensitive to the needs of multiple populations of concern.
