Summary of Deliberations on Climate Change and Displacement
UNHCR organized an expert roundtable on climate change and displacement, which was held in Bellagio, Italy, from 22 to 25 February 2011, with the support of the Rockefeller Foundation. The discussion was informed by a number of research papers. Participants included 19 experts from 15 countries, drawn from governments, NGOs, academia and international organizations. The roundtable is one in a series of events organized to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (“1951 Convention”) and the 50th anniversary of the 1961 Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness.
