Refugees International Welcomes President Biden’s Commitment to Address Climate Displacement

Please see below statement from Refugees International Climate Displacement Manager Kayly Ober:

“As climate change-related disasters continue to displace people around the world, we must explore a path forward that not only protects people but gives them options to live safely and with dignity, including through relocation. 

The commitment to conducting a report on climate change and its impact on migration in the executive order that President Biden issued this evening is a bold and new step forward in establishing the United States as an important world leader in this critical area.”
