Migrants can contribute to preventing, preparing for and responding to disasters in Europe, says new EUR-OPA/IOM study

The Council of Europe’s EUR-OPA Major Hazards Agreement and the UN’s International Organisation for Migration (IOM) are to publish a joint study on the benefits of involving migrants in disaster risk reduction initiatives.

The study, entitled Migrants in Disaster Risk Reduction: Practices for Inclusion, is being launched at 13h30 on 19 July in room XVIII of the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. It aims to highlight ways to better integrate migrants into the decision-making, policy-setting and implementation processes of disaster risk reduction initiatives.
