A group of experts has crafted the Peninsula Principles on Climate Displacement within States, a set of 18 principles that can serve as "a template for Government States to use to protect the human rights of people who lose their homes, lands and livelihoods as a result of climate change." Their focus is on internal displacement (unlike the Nansen Principles which address cross-border displacement) and as such, their aim is to build on and apply the UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement to the climate displacement context.
