Migration, Environment and Climate Change: Assessing the Evidence

Migration, Environment and Climate Change: Assessing the Evidence
International Organization For Migration (December 15, 2009) | ISBN: 9290684542 | 448 pages | File type: PDF | 1 mb

Gradual and sudden environmental changes are resulting in substantial human movement and displacement, and the scale of such flows, both internal and cross-border, is expected to rise with unprecedented impacts on lives and livelihoods. Despite the potential challenge, there has been a lack of strategic thinking about this policy area partly due to a lack of data and empirical research on this topic. Adequately planning for and managing environmentally-induced migration will be critical for human security.

The papers in this volume were first presented at the Research Workshop on Migration and the Environment: Developing a Global Research Agenda held in Munich, Germany in April 2008. One of the key objectives on the Munich workshop was to address the need for more sound empirical research and identify priority areas of research for policy makers in the field of migration and the environment.
