This Background Brief sets out key international standards and guidelines relating to displacement in the context of disasters and climate change. Recognising that the volume of even those standards and guidelines that are directly relevant to disaster displacement runs into hundreds of pages, it was considered that a background brief that condenses key principles and standards relating to all ‘phases’ of disaster displacement would be of use to actors lacking in-depth knowledge of the subject.
