Climate Change, Migration and Health Symposium, September 28, 2017, Cambridge, MA

Climate-induced migration will be a central feature of the 21st century, with grave consequences for global health. The crisis in Syria was precipitated by a 1,000 year drought; we should expect more such crises in the years to come. On September 28, the Harvard Global Health Institute will host a symposium on Climate Change, Migration and HealthDr. Jennifer Leaning, Director of the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, will deliver the keynote address. Expert panels will address the humanitarian response to climate-induced migration, the implications for law and policy, and the imperative for improved empirical research to better understand this growing crisis. 

A continental breakfast will be served at 8:30am and the program will begin at 9:00am. A brown bag lunch will be provided after the program is concluded at 12:30pm.
