Migration and Global Environmental Change
The World Bank's Social Development Department was part of the high-level stakeholder group for a UK Government Foresight Project on Migration and Global Environmental Change. The study set out to understand the interaction between migration and global environmental change out until 2060 - to help those who move, those in host areas, and those who stay behind; and the policy implications. Launched in the UK on October 20, 2011, the report assembles and analyzes the latest evidence and research on these two interconnected global processes to fill a gap in current knowledge. Based on robust evidence, expert steering and innovative methods, the report provides a concrete platform for understanding policy implications and responses.
