Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development

Rio is finally (very nearly) here (it takes place 20-22 June 2012).  The NGO Committee on Migration will have a presence there, and will submit this discussion paper as input to the conference.

The paper is on environmentally-induced migration (EIM), and synthesizes: our knowledge of the realities, our concerns, and our recommendations.  To download a PowerPoint that we are using in presenting the paper’s themes, click here.

One thought on “Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development

  1. I agree with the paper. I have only one point: the recommandation number 8 should include the need for an international legal framework in order to protect environnmental migrants.
