Collecting Data on the Migration-Environment Nexus


Bilsborrow, Richard E. (2009). Collecting Data on the Migration-Environment Nexus.. Laczko, Frank & Aghazarm, Christine (Eds.) (pp. 115-196). Geneva: International Organization for Migration.


Gradual and sudden environmental changes are resulting in substantial human movement and displacement, and the scale of such flows, both internal and cross-border, is expected to rise with unprecedented impacts on lives and livelihoods. Despite the potential challenge, there has been a lack of strategic thinking about this policy area partly due to a lack of data and empirical research on this topic. Adequately planning for and managing environmentally induced migration will be critical for human security.
