The research asked, how can the effectiveness of self-reliance programming for refugees be increased given: • Knowledge about refugees’ current level of exposure to climate-related hazards, • Climate projections in particular regions and countries for the next 10, 20, 30 years and beyond, and • Existing vulnerabilities and capabilities of refu
