A group of scholars, UN officials and other experts have developed a set of guidelines on the governance of internal climate displacement, called: The Peninsula Principles on Climate Displacement within States.

The Peninsula Principles acknowledge that affected communities must come forward with their claims when it comes to climate displacement, but also outline what the corresponding obligations of States are, based within currently existing Human Rights laws, to protect and respect the rights of those affected by climate displacement.

This video provides a brief introduction on these principles and on the issue of internal climate displacement. Ingrid Boas has been one of the scholars participating in the development of these principles, and gives a short interview on this issue in the video (Ingrid speaks at 4.30 min.).
