Linking collecting the evidence base with policy through tailored training workshops proved to be very valuable to support countries in mainstreaming mobility in climate change adaptation plans and vice versa.
Latest publications from the e-library. Major findings of the research study conducted in the framework of the MECLEP project are: Migration often has a positive impact on adaptation as it allows households affected by environmental and climate change to diversify income, to improve their employment, health and education opportunities and to increase their preparedness for future hazards ; Displacement due to natural hazards poses more challenges to adaptation, often linked to an increasing vulnerability of those displaced; Planned relocation can both represent a successful adaptation strategy and expose the affected population to new vulnerabilities.
Many policy implications emerged from the research study. In particular: The necessity of integrating migration into urban planning to reduce challenges for both migrant households and the communities of destination; The need of paying particular attention to gender issues and to the needs of vulnerable groups, such as the elderly and trapped populations that cannot move.
