image of Migration, Development and Environment

This book explores the conceptual framework of the interrelationships between migration, environment and development, which are among the most pressing issues on the contemporary global agenda. After a conceptualization of this relationship, the paper treats, in a depth analysis with tables and figures, main issues such as: environment as cause of migration in case of environmental disasters and environmental degradation; climate change and migration; displacement by large projects and impacts of migration on destination environments. The implications these have for policy are also considered.



Climate change and migration

The release of the Stern Review (2006) and the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2007) has focused global attention on the issue of climate change and reflects the scientific consensus regarding the reality, urgency and significance of global climate change.
