Human mobility in the UNFCCC
IOM Outlook on Migration, Environment and Climate Change (MECC)
The International Organization for Migration (IOM), as the leading intergovernmental migration agency, has been at the forefront of operational, research, policy and advocacy efforts, seeking to bring environmental migration to the heart of international, regional and national concerns, in collaboration with its Member States, observers and partners. IOM’s work on Migration, Environment and Climate Change (MECC) has greatly expanded in the past five years, both in terms of the number of activities and as regards IOM’s engagement in external policy processes. In order to continue stepping up IOM’s engagement in this thematic area, a dedicated institutional structure, the “Migration, Environment and Climate Change Division” (MECC), was created within the organization, tasked with leading IOM’s work on migration, environment and climate change.
