This second joint policy brief, produced by the United Nations University (UNU) and the Nansen Initiative, examines the available options for coordinating and linking human mobility issues with climate change–related policies and planning, in particular, the development of national adaptation plans (NAPs).
Different policies are required for different types of human mobility related to climatic changes. The purpose of Policy Brief No. 8 is to help distinguish between human migration, displacement and planned relocation and present state-of-the-art thinking about some of the key issues related to addressing these in the context of climate policy.
