IOM UK and the Center for Global Development are delighted to invite you to an online panel discussion, titled "Addressing environmental migration: taking global commitments a step forward", which will take place on Thursday, 20 January, 2:00-3:00pm GMT

The event will tackle the climate change-migration nexus and how countries can strengthen their global commitments in both policy arenas ahead of COP27 and the International Migration Review Forum (IMRF). Speakers will discuss practical examples of how high-income countries can facilitate both regional and international "environmental migration" through regular pathways and upholding migrants' rights in the process. 

This event builds on the recommendations contained in two policy papers, recently published by IOM UK and CGD, and provides a space for experts to consider these recommendations and how to feasibly take them forward.
