Introducing a new human rights-based approach towards expanding legal protections for climate-displaced persons.

Please join ICAAD and GGRC for an interactive training on climate-induced displacement and international law. All experience and knowledge levels are welcome. The training will feature the launch of ICAAD’s Right to Life with Dignity Policy Paper, which proposes a new framework to expand legal protections for those displaced by the climate crisis.


Speaker – Erin Thomas, Director, Change Facilitator, ICAAD

As a human rights advocate, Erin works on difficult human rights issues in the Pacific including gender-based violence, anti-imperialism, and climate justice. An organiser at heart, Erin’s disciplinary background is in the critical social sciences. She earned her M.A. in Development Studies at the University of Auckland.

Alongside urgent efforts to combat the climate crisis by ending fossil fuel extraction, we also must be expanding legal protections for those displaced. This requires an understanding of what already exists and what pathways we must forge ourselves. We’re thrilled to offer this training and paper launch to bring more advocates into the conversation about using international law to protect people displaced by the climate crisis,” Erin Thomas.

🌱 What Awaits You:

  • Overview of existing international law that could be applied to climate mobility
