International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Deputy Director General (DDG) for Operations Ugochi Daniels has advocated for greater efforts to jointly address climate change and human mobility at national, regional and global levels.
“Ahead of COP 27, we need to redouble our efforts to ensure the climate change discourse reflects the climate migration nexus, and that this is recognized by the international community,” she said.
DDG Daniels discussed the issues during her discussions with government officials and international humanitarian and development actors.
The World Bank estimates that by 2050 one in every seven people in Bangladesh will have been displaced by climate change.
