Recent scientific work indicates that the effects of climate change on population displacement are much greater than previously predicted. As of yet, there is no agreed framework for climate change displaced people. This article responds to the current information arising from climate change science and considers the most appropriate legal framework to deal with the looming threat of massive and unprecedented population displacement.
