Now Aruba, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have become the fastest-growing international destinations.

There is still a lot of uncertainty in the coming months, so it’s a good idea to take advantage of refundable rates whenever possible. Travel insurance is another good way to stay flexible. You can purchase a mix of coverage types that will reimburse your nonrefundable trip expenses if something goes awry. For example, trip cancellation insurance can cover the nonrefundable, prepaid portions of your trip if it’s cancelled for an unforeseeable event, like a natural disaster or severe weather. And of course top of travelers’ minds is the coronavirus. The best pandemic travel insurance plans offer COVID-related coverage, including medical and cancellation coverage.

Climate change does not affect everyone equally; populations of certain geographic locations, professions, and socio-economic status will be more prone to climate displacement than others. Certain geographic regions, such as the Asia-Pacific region, have long been the victims of increasing natural hazards (flooding, monsoons, slowly disappearing islands). Furthermore, those populations whose livelihoods depend on agricultural productivity are at heightened risk. From a socio-economic perspective, the poorest of the poor face the most severe vulnerabilities, as they lack the financial resources which might permit them to legally migrate to safer grounds- sometimes rendering them a trapped population. What are the applicable international human rights more information frameworks? International human rights law provides a large body of obligations for States to protect and fulfill the right to education, beginning with Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which establishes that “everyone has the right to education” (emphasis added). Other international conventions- such as the 1960 Convention against Discrimination in Education, celebrating its 60th anniversary on 14 December 2020 - enshrine the right to equality of opportunity and treatment in education, including for foreign nationals, the obligation to provide free and compulsory primary education, to make higher education equally accessible to all, and more. There is also a growing body of international policy that calls on states to provide certain rights for the displaced, notably: the strengthening of the resilience of education systems in countries affected by climate change, calling for increased preparedness, solidarity, and responsibility to respond to climate displacement, and facilitating orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration. However, the crux of the interplay between climate displacement and the right to education is that while climate-displaced persons have the same right to education as any and every other person, they have no specific right under international law to enter or remain in another State; under the 1951 Refugee Convention, persons displaced by climate change do not fall within the legal definition of a “refugee,” and therefore are not guaranteed legal residency abroad.
