The keynote paper titled “Social Protection for Climate-induced Migration” examined the existing legal and institutional framework to respond to climate-induced human migration and proposed responses towards preventing an outpouring of ‘homeless’ people through integrated strategies from public private partnerships. It reflected on the Institute’s research on the phenomenon of forced migration caused by climate change which is a problem facing the world at large and Bangladesh in particular.
