Migration Patterns

Migration and Global Environmental Change: Future Challenges and Opportunities

Author : Foresight | 2011
Published By: United Nations

This report considers migration in the context of environmental change over the next 50 years. The scope of this report is international: It examines global migration trends, but also internal migration trends particularly within low-income countries, which are often more important in this context. The challenges of migration in the context of environmental change require a new strategic approach to policy. Policy makers will need to take action to reduce the impact of environmental change on communities yet must simultaneously plan for migration. Critical improvements to the lives of millions are more likely to be achieved where migration is seen as offering opportunities as well as challenges.
