This publication is the fourth of the annual series of publications aiming to enhance understanding of natural disasters, sudden natural onset events and slow onset events, and their links to human mobility. It is not only focused on 2013 events but also considers the longer-term impacts of a natural event on migration, as they can be assessed with the state of knowledge existing in 2013. It also reviews the developments at policy level relating to migration, climate and the environment. Written in collaboration with students enrolled in the environment and migration course at the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) of Sciences Po, this report examines the issue of environmental migration, by analysing case studies selected by students.
IOM is particularly concerned with human mobility matters in the context of environmental degradation and a changing climate. This new volume of the State of Environmental Migration is also part of IOM’s commitment to provide information and knowledge on different environmental migration issues and to engage with academic partners in the development of research, data and publications.
