Loss and Damage, Human Mobility and Displacement
Convened by the Loss and Damage Collaboration (L&DC), the "Loss and Damage and the Challenges Of Human Mobility and Displacement Working Group" looks at Displacement and Human Mobility in the context of Loss and Damage workstreams under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) including the Loss and Damage Fund, Santiago Network, the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage and the expert groups of its Executive Committee (ExCom).

To find out more about the working group please contact: teo[@]lossanddamagecollaboration.org (L&DC) and/or lorenzog[@]unops.org of the Platform on Disaster Displacement (PDD). 

In 2024, the working group began to collaborate with the "Advisory Group on Climate Change and Human Mobility" to host joint calls, share resources with the aim of better coordination and reducing duplication. The Advisory Group is coordinated by Alice Baillat of the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) who can be contacted at alice.baillat [@] idmc.ch.
Lorenzo coordinates the Project "Avert, Minimize and Address Displacement Related to the Effects of Climate Change" with the Secretariat of the Platform on Disaster Displacement. He has been working and writing on Disaster Risk Reduction, Displacement and Migration for over 15 years with international organisations, non-governmental organisations and academic institutions. He can be reached at lorenzog@unops.org
Alice is the Policy Adviser at the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre, where she is in charge of the global policy engagement of IDMC on disaster displacement. Her main area of expertise is on the interconnections between climate change, disasters and human mobility, with a particular interest on the loss and damage associated with displacement. Alice has also experience in conducting research on climate governance, migration and security, and focused her PhD research on the Bangladesh's climate diplomacy. She has published several articles, book chapters, reports and blog pieces on these various topics.
Teo works to coordinate the L&DC's Advocacy and Outreach program, communications, and Art & Culture program. He is also an award winning artist, filmmaker and photographer working on projects relating to Loss and Damage, climate-induced migration and displacement.
