An Omnibus Overview for Policymakers and Development Practitioners
This policy paper provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the challenges and potential policy options concerning climate-related migration. Climate change will have a significant impact on migration movements at all levels, including national, regional, and international level. In many cases, they are already becoming apparent. While most migration movements affected by climate change will occur within national borders, the international system is inadequately prepared for the changes and migration movements that are to come. Migration is an effective means of adapting to climate change. Yet, political measures are necessary to support the positive impacts and opportunities of climate-related mobility while mitigating any negative consequences. The authors of this publication present concrete policy options in this context.
