Facing displacement pressures as a community brings its own set of challenges. This webinar focuses on considerations for protection, retreat, and relocation at the community-level. It narrows in on cases of communities that remain on the frontlines of severe displacement challenges and continue to adapt. Panelists discusses 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.
