COP23 considers enhanced protection for "climate refugees"

09.11.2017 08:02 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) At the ongoing COP23 UN Climate Conference in Bonn, negotiations have started on the way the dialogue will take place at next year conference within Poland, to accelerate implementation of the Paris Agreement, UN Radio says referring to the UNHCR (UN refugee agency) report. As to the report, as of this week, the Conference host country, Germany, announced a US$58 million pledge for the Adaptation Fund, which supports vulnerable communities within developing countries. As to the report, one of the other issues under discussion at COP23 is how to provide better protection for so-called «climate refugees». With displacement due to natural disasters now amounting to just over 25 million people each year, according to figures from the Norwegian Refugee Council, the poorest and most marginalized are bearing the brunt. While speaking within the Conference, Marine Franck, UNCHR climate change officer, said special measures are being taken within some countries to provide better protection for those forced to leave their countries of origin due to climate change. Highlighting humanitarian protection visas, and temporary-stay measures, among others, she said that until all states embrace the same laws, refugee protections will remain inconsistent. «The purpose now is to harmonize and enhance the use of these instruments by states so we work on this with the platform on disaster-displacement very closely,» she added.
