The Migration, Environment and Climate Change: Policy Brief Series aims to contribute to the global knowledge base on the relationship between migration and environmental change, such as climate change, and the formulation of related policy options. The series is produced as part of the Migration, Environment and Climate Change: Evidence for Policy (MECLEP) project funded by the European Union, implemented by IOM through a consortium with six research partners. Building on the research of “migration as adaptation”, the fifth issue aims to discuss possible adaptation policies and current climate change and development policy structures on human mobility in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Kenya, Mauritius, Papua New Guinea and Viet Nam. It presents available national policy channels for proactive adaptation, as well as the ways in which proactively managed migration can be incorporated within these existing frameworks. The brief is supported by key findings from the six assessment reports of the MECLEP project.
The Migration, Environment and Climate Change: Policy Brief Series welcomes submissions from policymakers and researchers worldwide. For inquiries on article submission, please contact the MECLEP team (MECLEP@iom.int).
