This award renews support for a project, carried out in collaboration with UNHCR (the UN refugee agency), whose goal is to place the issue of planned population relocations on the international agenda and provide guidance to governments and other stakeholder involved in planning relocations in order to protect people from disasters and the effects of environmental change, including climate change. The project involves broad dissemination of a set of draft Guidelines (basic principles) for planned relocations, refinement of those Guidelines on the basis of feedback received from governments, international agencies, and civil society organizations, and development of a detailed operational guidance for carrying out planned relocations.
