The environment has always been a driver of migration, as people flee to survive natural disasters or, faced with harsh and deteriorating environmental conditions, move to seek opportunities elsewhere. Climate change is expected to exacerbate sudden- and slow-onset disasters and gradual environmental degradation. Through these impacts, climate change is already influencing migration around the world.
To foster sustainable development while making migration a choice, IOM is engaged in building the resilience of countries and communities affected by a changing climate, environmental hazards and structural factors of vulnerability.
