The publication targets a broad external audience, including but not limited to policymakers, practitioners, researchers, international agencies, private sector, donors, students and think tanks.



IOM’s approach to migration, environment and climate change

Environmental change and natural disasters have always been major drivers of migration. However, climate change predictions for the twenty-first century indicate that even more people are expected to be on the move as weather-related disasters such as extreme precipitations and temperatures become more frequent and intense (IPCC, 2014), and changes to climate conditions impact livelihoods.
