Assessing the Migration, Climate Change and Conflict Dimension in the Lake Chad region

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is implementing a project on "Assessing the Migration, Climate Change and Conflict Dimension in the Lake Chad region", covering Cameroon, Chad, Niger, Nigeria. The objective of the project is to strengthen the evidence on climate-related migration in the Lake Chad Basin and its impacts on livelihoods, so as to inform governmental and humanitarian policies and action. The project includes desk research and field data collection through IOM's DTM tools and methodologies, which will be presented in a final analytical report.
