IOM Disaster Risk Reduction Report 2021 - Addressing Mobility Challenges in the Context of Disasters and Climate Change: A Global Stocktake of IOM Activities in Disaster Risk Reduction
This report highlights a broad selection of IOM’s disaster risk reduction (DRR) projects in 2019 and 2020. These projects made contributions to addressing mobility challenges in what is an increasingly complex and interconnected global risk landscape, characterized by evolving disaster and climate risks and unprecedented patterns of global and local mobility. The escalating frequency of extreme weather events that are often propelled by climate change leads to the annual displacement and migration of millions of people and erodes progress made towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the growing systemic, cascading and multi-hazard risk environment in which States and communities are interdependent and cooperation is paramount to reduce risk and build resilience.
