Compendium of IOM's Activities in Migration, Climate Change and the Environment

Description : The consequences of climate change for migration present humanity with an unprecedented challenge. Since the early 1990s, IOM has been active in the area of migration, climate change and the environment, and has carried out programmes to address this challenge in more than 40 countries in the Pacific Islands, Latin America, Asia and Africa.† These activities have constructed a solid foundation of first-hand experiences and lessons learned that have energized the Organizationís policy and research.†

This compendium charts the lineage of thought and action on a subject matter whose significance will increase in the years to come.† It maps out the complex terrain that is the relationship between societies and their environment through an illustrative range of projects, from providing humanitarian response to displacement caused by natural disasters, to promoting adaptation to gradual environmental degradation. The Compendium serves to demonstrate that despite the scale of the task ahead, creative solutions exist for communities affected by environmental and climate change.
