Key Messages to Inform the Pre-COP26 Ministerial Meeting

The UN Network on Migration (Network) calls on the Parties of the UNFCCC to ensure greater synergies between the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), the Paris Agreement, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to scale-up action on climate change and migration which places primary emphasis on the wellbeing and rights of all humans, without discrimination. The Network also encourages States to collaborate with actors engaged in other forms of human mobility identified under the Cancun Adaptation Framework - namely displacement and planned relocation – to ensure a comprehensive response to the multiple protection-related challenges arising in the context of climate change and disasters.
