The International Organization for Migration (IOM) will conduct a two-day training for Asia-Pacific policy makers and practitioners on the migration-environment nexus, in collaboration with the Foresight Programme (Government Office for Science, UK), the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The training aims to build the capacity of policy makers and practitioners to address migration challenges within climate change, development and environment policies and strategies. The training will also facilitate exchanges among policymakers and practitioners on climate change, environment and migration, with a particular focus on migration management policies. The training will be held back to back with the Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum.
