    Abstract This policy brief addresses issues of education rights in the context of climate change and potential climate change displacement for SIDS residents. Challenges to adapting learning systems in the context of climate change are common to many SIDS and other countries, but SIDS also face unique challenges due to their geography, culture, and economic activities. It provides the following recommendations to build the resilience of education systems in SIDS to meet the needs of people displaced by climate change: (i) build and maintain multiple facilities that can serve as evacuation centres so schools can continue as learning facilities in the aftermath of extreme weather events; (ii) continue to develop teaching materials and pedagogies within SIDS’ education systems to be employed during times of disruption, while ensuring learners’ socialisation needs are met in the case of online or distance learning; (iii) create parallel curricular competencies between SIDS and destination countries, and advocate for access to education and training in any bilateral or multilateral arrangements for mobility and migration.
