schema:description"Environment and international migration and their relationship with development have been the focus of major international attention recently with the release of the Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC 2007) and the holding of the first Global Forum on Migration and Development in Belgium in July 2007; however, little of this increased attention has been concerned with the complex relationships between them. In both research and policy, the linkages with economic development have evolved separately, yet it is apparent that their interrelationships are of considerable significance for understanding social, economic and environmental change and for developing effective interventions to reduce poverty and move toward sustainability. This paper analyzes the various permutations of this relationship through an analysis of the current literature, and considers the implications for policy.--Publisher's description."@en
