IOM Outlook on Migration, Environment and Climate Change aims to bring together in one easy-to-access reference document the knowledge accrued by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and to present IOM’s role, understanding and approach to environmental migration. This reference publication builds on IOM’s expertise on the topic at the policy, research, international migration law, advocacy and operational levels. The publication targets a broad external audience, including but not limited to policymakers, practitioners, researchers, international agencies, private sector, donors, students and think tanks.



Policy coherence

Given the multidimensionality of the phenomenon, policy coherence on environmental migration is critical. Governments need to overcome policy silos and draw on all relevant ministries and areas of expertise in designing their policies. In addition to migration management and climate change (adaptation) policies, environmental migration links up with policies in fields as diverse as development, disaster risk reduction (DRR), humanitarian assistance and national security.
