Migration, Environment and Climate Change: Training Manual

The Migration, Environment and Climate Change: Training Manual (Facilitators’ Guide) provides an in-depth overview on the co

ncepts of the migration-environment nexus, mobility and disasters and slow-onset events, data, legal issues, regional perspectives, and a step-by-step roadmap on how to integrate human mobility into policies, including climate change adaptation policies.  

The Training Manual aims to stimulate and equip policymakers to reflect on policy options and examples of good practice, facilitate policy dialogues, and support the development of policy frameworks at national and regional levels. The Facilitators’ Guide also helps enhance the capacity of policymakers to contribute to key policy processes, in particular the climate negotiations and national and regional disaster risk reduction and climate policies, contributing to more practical on-the-ground activities addressing the migration-environment nexus. 

The Training Manual was developed through a process of collaboration with MECLEP partners, experts and policymakers, and has been pilot tested in seven countries before its release.

Integrating Migrants in Emergency Preparedness, Response and Recovery in Their Host Countries

When conflicts or natural disasters erupt, they can disproportionately affect migrants living, working, studying, traveling,

or transiting in the country experiencing the crisis. By integrating and engaging migrants in their work, emergency management actors can play a vital role in addressing these factors, lessening migrants’ vulnerability in the context of crises and improving responses. 

This IOM training course targets the personnel of emergency management institutions and first responders to strengthen their capacity to reach out to, assist and protect migrants before, during and after crises.
