Facing displacement pressures as a community brings its own set of challenges. This webinar will focus on considerations for protection, retreat, and relocation at the community-level. It will narrow in on cases of communities that remain on the frontlines of severe displacement challenges and continue to adapt. Panelists will discuss the decision-making processes, successes, and on-going challenges for managed retreat, relocation, site expansion in their communities. The lessons shared can be utilized by other communities experiencing these decisions in their own geographies while also elevating the distinct obstacles faced by the communities on the panel.
