Foreword

In the past two decades, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) has developed a comprehensive policy, research and operational programme on migration, environment and climate change. The Organization’s interest in migration, environment and climate change stems from its dedication – outlined in the IOM Strategy – to explore emerging themes related to migration governance. Paying attention to these “new” issues is part of IOM’s commitment to supporting Member States find innovative solutions by turning challenges into opportunities. It is widely recognized that human mobility, in both its forced and voluntary forms, is increasingly impacted by environmental and climatic factors and that migration in turn also impacts the environment. The Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) highlights the importance and complexity of human mobility in the context of climate change.
