If you are attending via live stream, please register as a virtual participant so we can share follow-up documents with you after the symposium.
The symposium program (PDF) with schedules, bios, abstracts, and more is now available for download. There is also a detailed symposium agenda with panelists.
This symposium will provide an opportunity for stakeholders, researchers, policy experts, indigenous leaders, and local, state, and federal government officials to explore legal and policy opportunities and challenges arising from climate displacement. This includes questions about how to plan for and implement voluntary migration and community-led relocation as adaptation strategies to the impacts of climate change, both domestically and in the context of the Pacific Islands.
The Pacific Islands Climate Science Center and NOAA Office for Coastal Management are also cosponsors of the symposium.
Registration is now open. The registration fee for the symposium is $150 on or before December 2, 2016, and $200 after December 2. No registration fee will be charged for full-time enrolled students. Please contact Sue Keller for the student fee-waiver code.
