IOM's Programme and Activities on Capacity Building on Migration, Environment, Climate Change and Disasters
The paper provides an overview of the various capacity building strategies developed by IOM for the management of climate-induced migration. The tools outlined include: (1) Migration, Environment and Climate Change: Training Manual (Facilitator's Guide); (2) Training Workshops on Migration, Environment and Climate Change; and (3) Key Documents on Migration, Environment and Climate Change.
Migration, Environment and Climate Change: Training Manual (Facilitators’ Guide)
This training manual, produced by IOM's Migration, Environment and Climate Change (MECC) Division, offers a practical look at issues surrounding environmental migration and how policymakers at local and regional levels can prepare themselves for related issues. Its highly readable format ensures that it is accessible to readers of all levels while remaining informative.
Module 4, Data and Methodological Issues, will be of interest to those researching data capacity building.
How useful and reliable are disaster databases in the context of climate and global change? A comparative case study analysis in Peru
Disaster databases are a primary tool for the analysis of disaster characteristics and trends at global or national scales, and they support disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. However, the quality, consistency and completeness of different disaster databases are highly variable. Such variation critically influences the outcome of any study.
Measuring the Environmental Dimensions of Human Migration; a Demographer's Toolkit
This working paper is the product of brainstorming session at a workshop on “Migration, Urbanization, and Climate Change” at the Institute of Behavioral Science, University of Colorado Boulder, USA. The paper demonstrates how environmental migration data might be collected and analyzed in order to better understand this phenomenon.
