Forced Migration Review Issue 59, October 2018: Twenty Years of the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement
Global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration
Second informal thematic session on “Addressing drivers of migration, including the adverse effects of climate change, natural disasters and human-made crises, through protection and assistance, sustainable development and poverty eradication, conflict prevention and resolution”
22-23 May 2017, United Nations Headquarters, New York
The Global Compact for Migration (GCM) offers a unique opportunity to build on global frameworks and instruments to address the challenges of human mobility in the context of disasters and the adverse effects of climate change and to synthesize their messages in a coherent and cross-cutting way. Member States were encouraged to promote these messages during the GCM process.
Migration plays a significant role as a response strategy for coping with climatic and non-climatic drivers of change among vulnerable households in Ghana. At the same time, it exacerbates gendered vulnerabilities with consequences for community resilience and national economic planning.
