Climate change has been called the single greatest risk for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. There is increasing evidence of climate change becoming an additional driver of migration, both internal and across borders. Among the many drivers of forced displacement, sudden disasters as well as slow-onset natural emergencies fuelled by climate change are now gaining in importance. Addressing decent work deficits and their interaction with climate-related impacts as root causes of migration can help make migration a choice, not a necessity. This online course will address the impact of climate change on migration and forced displacement trends and explore concrete strategies for ensuring labour market integration of people displaced due to natural disaster, environmental degradation and climate change. It will also consider the potentially adverse impacts of large, long-term displacement on the environment and natural resources of the area (country or region) of destination and how to mitigate them.
