Practical Guidance for UNHCR Staff on IDP Protection in the Context of Disasters and the Adverse Effects of Climate Change

This guidance has been developed in order to help field staff at UNHCR operations become familiar with, prepare for and deliver protection responses in the context of internal displacement linked to disasters and the adverse effects of climate change. While similar to conflict-induced settings, the characteristics of internal displacement in the context of disasters and the adverse effects of climate change, may in some instances require specific approaches regarding protection risks and priority responses, and involve additional considerations for preparedness and response by UNHCR operations.
