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.

Building Evidence and Enhancing Capacity to Formulate Policy Responses on Environmental Migration in The Gambia

The project aims to contribute to evidence-based policies to better address environmental migration-related challenges in The Gambia through:

  • Building the capacity of national and local government authorities to utilize the knowledge generated to respond to environmental migration-related challenges.
  • Generating knowledge on climate and environment vulnerabilities, associated movements/displacements, and existing adaptation measures and on how these affect internal and international migration of Gambians.
