This paper presents IOM’s efforts to support vulnerable and mobile communities affected by environmental hazards through disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) activities conducive to sustainable development.

IOM’s programmes around the world have demonstrated the effectiveness of DRR and CCA for reducing risk exposure and vulnerability and for improved management of migration, particularly in times of crisis. This paper advocates for further strengthening DRR and CCA mechanisms at the global, regional, national and local levels through an integrated and cross-sectoral approach supported by appropriate and innovative financing systems.
