In addressing what they’re calling urgent challenges posed by climate change and its impact on migration and displacement, the State Department is now announcing a new approach when it comes to their policies.

These include strengthening protections for affected populations, fostering partnerships with humanitarian organizations, engaging in multilateral diplomacy, and enhancing coordination between relevant agencies.
