In recognition of the increasing significance of the migration, environment and climate change nexus, the IOM 105th Council Session, convened on 25 to 27 November 2014, included a special focus on the complex linkages between climate, environment and human mobility. Several high-level events were dedicated to examining this nexus with a double objective: i) to bring climate and environment to the forefront of IOM’s institutional agenda and ii)  to contribute to relevant global policy processes.  This report offers an overview of the different events and summarizes the salient points that emerged from the discussions.
