Introducing environmentally sustainable reintegration: A two-fold strategy

The webinar introduced innovative practices of environmentally sustainable reintegration and their positive impact on both climate change adaptation as well as returnees’ reintegration in their countries of origin.

During this event, the newly launched Environmental Annex of the IOM Reintegration Handbook “Guidance for mainstreaming environmental and climate considerations into reintegration programming“, funded by the UK Department for International Development, was presented.

In addition, findings from the project “Mainstreaming environmental dimensions into reintegration support to reduce the effects of climate change on migration in West Africa”, implemented by IOM and funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, was also presented
