New publication on Migrants in Disaster Risk Reduction now available

In today’s increasingly globalized and mobile societies, internal and international migrants, refugees and asylum seekers represent a significant share of the population of cities and countries. The EUR-OPA Major Hazards Agreement, together with the International Organisation for Migration have gathered experiences from researchers and practitioners from a variety of geo­graphical contexts on how they have been included and have participated in disaster prevention, preparedness, response and recovery activities. This new publication aims to highlight the importance and benefits of, as well as options for, inte­grating migrants into decision-making, policy-setting and implementation of disaster risk reduction initiatives.

It builds upon the knowledge and experiences gathered through the Migrants In Countries In Crisis (MICIC) Initiative, a global state-led process for which IOM has been serving as Secretariat, and the Council of Europe’s EUR-OPA programme on “Migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in the context of major risks prevention and management”.
