Fact Sheet: COVID-19, Displacement and Climate Change

COVID-19 presents unique risks to displaced people, who are often living in densely populated settlements where communicable diseases can spread quickly. Climate change makes the chance of disasters striking during the COVID-19 pandemic more likely, and their impact more severe on those displaced.

COVID-19 increases vulnerability for populations living in regions especially impacted by the adverse effects of climate change.
