The correlation between migration and environment: what do we do next?

Date and Time: Friday, 15 March 2019, 13:00


Event description:

In recent years, environmental migration questions have increasingly featured in global environmental and climate change policy discussions, notably under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, in previous United Nations Environmental Assemblies, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification. As policy discussions intensify on a topic seen as a key challenge of today and tomorrow’s global governance, this event will give to the participants of the UN Environment Assembly the opportunities to discuss the current evidence on the poverty, natural resources management and migration nexus, global governance of environmental migration and reflections on concrete solutions.
