IOM in collaboration with the Government of Bangladesh held a National Consultation on “Assessing the climate change, environmental degradation and migration nexus in South Asia” on 26th October 2016 at CIRDAP Auditorium, Dhaka. IOM is implementing a regional project in Bangladesh, Nepal and Maldives to provide an assessment of climate change, environmental degradation and migration dynamics based on which a Model Plan of Action for strategic interventions has been drafted. This will form the basis for a regional framework to address the challenges related to the migration-environment and climate change nexus in South Asia.
In Bangladesh, along with extensive desk research and policy analysis, field research was undertaken in four distinct districts of Bangladesh, which are vulnerable to specific environmental events and also represent high rates of migration. The draft findings of the assessment study and proposed Model Plan of Action was shared at the national consultation to relevant stakeholders for their valuable feedback. The consultation drew together more than 60 representatives from Ministries, government agencies, civil society/NGOs, development partners, academics and researchers.
