This research produced by the Migration, Environment and Climate Change (MECC) Division of the International Organization for Migration summarizes the references to migration in the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and provides an analytical overview of the migration dimension of the submitted climate action commitments. According to the research, 20 per cent of the current submissions mention migration in one of its different forms and the references mostly focus on the three dimensions of climate migration: managing the effects of climate change, using migration as a possible adaptation strategy and leveraging financial transfers from migrants to contribute to climate action.
