TransRe Project/Uni Bonn at COP22 in Marrakesh
Harald Sterly, Project Coordinator, and Kayly Ober, Research Associate, are at the Conference of the Parties (COP22) in Marrakesh, Morocco representing the the TransRe Project and the University of Bonn. “COP22 gets less attention than the COP21 in Paris, but the results presented there will be just as important. This is the COP that will focus on loss and damage, where countries will determine if displacement and migration issues may indeed be a part of compensation issues,” said Kayly Ober.

As part of the efforts to refocus discussions on climate change and migration, the TransRe Project will hold an all-day event on Thursday, 10 November at the Climate Oasis Figuig in the Blue Zone. Special guests Koko Warner (UNFCCC), Saleemul Huq (International Centre for Climate Change and Development), Mariam Traore Chazanoel (International Organization for Migration), and Atle Solberg (Platform on Disaster Displacement) will be joining throughout the day for informal Q&As with a public audience. The TransRe Project invites all attendees of COP22 to participate.
“The TransRe Project hopes to stimulate conversation at this important nexus. We hope that students, policymakers, and practitioners all feel they have a part to play in ensuring that research and action on climate and migration issues continues at this COP and beyond,” said Harald Sterly.
