Climate Change Impacts: Relocation to Safer Ground
Tuesday, December 5th at 6:30pm
Columbia University, Faculty House

This panel will discuss the issues of retreat and relocation in relation to extreme weather events and climate change. In the United States, extreme weather has displaced people from their homes, causing disruption to communities and lives. This panel will provide an interdisciplinary exploration of the issues and challenges associated with climate-induced migration. What does climate science tell us about who may need to migrate? What are the legal issues surrounding managed retreat? Is relocation a feasible climate adaptation strategy? Panelists will explore these questions and more.

Featuring Columbia speakers:

  *   Lisa Dale, Lecturer, Undergraduate Program in Sustainable Development
  *   Michael Gerrard, Director, Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, Columbia Law School
  *   Lisa Goddard, Director, International Research Institute for Climate and Society, The Earth Institute
  *   Radley Horton, Lamont Associate Research Professor, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, The Earth Institute
  *   Marc Levy, Deputy Director, Center for International Earth Science Information Network, The Earth Institute
