IOM institutional engagement on migration, environment and climate change

In line with IOM’s comprehensive approach to human mobility, the Organization pursues three broad objectives in managing environmental migration, intervening at each stage of the migration cycle: a) to minimize forced and unmanaged migration as much as possible; b) where forced migration does occur, to ensure assistance and protection for those affected and to seek durable solutions; and c) to facilitate the role of migration as an adaptation strategy to climate change.
