High level panel on Climate Change, Environment and Migration - report available
2015 is the “year of climate” with the major UNFCCC climate negotiations to take place in November/December 2015 in Paris, with significant implications for IOM’s work on human mobility in relation to climate and environmental change.
In recognition of the increasing significance of the migration, environment and climate change nexus, the IOM 105th Council Session, convened on 25–27 November 2014, included a special focus on climate and the environment. Within the framework of the Council, a number of high-level events were dedicated to examining the linkages between migration, environment and climate change with a double objective to i) bring climate and environment to the forefront of IOM’s institutional agenda, and ii) contribute to relevant global policy processes. The report of the High level panel on Climate Change, Environment and Migration is available here.
