Planet on the move


Our living planet is and has always been on the move. Many species move in search of necessities such as food, water, shelter, reproduction, and safety. In some cases, movements are an adaptive response to environmental stresses and shocks; in other cases, environmental change, whether land degradation, climate change or other forms, may add to other drivers of migration. This report seeks to assess conservation challenges and opportunities at the confluence of migration, environmental change and conflict; initiate a widely inclusive dialogue with sensitivity towards justice and the difficult trade-offs ahead; and peer cautiously into the future while offering some optimism through the lens of environmental peacebuilding.
