Addressing climate change and migration in Asia and the Pacific - Final report

Source(s):  Asian Development Bank (ADB)

This report presents a detailed picture of the potential impacts of climate change on migration in Asia and the Pacific. It recommends interventions both to address the situation of those who have migrated, as well as those who remain in areas subject to environmental risk. It calls on governments to adopt polices and commit financing to social protection, livelihoods development, basic urban infrastructure development, and disaster risk management in order to reduce migration compelled by worsening environmental conditions, and to strengthen resilience of at-risk communities.

The overall report draws upon a wealth of research to provide policy makers with informed analysis of an emerging phenomenon requiring urgent attention by governments and the international community. The report also suggests that climate-induced migration should be seen not only as a threat to human well-being but also as a potential tool to promote human adaptation to climate change.
