Launch of the study “Environmental migration : challenges ...

As part of its study program "Climate Change: Impacts on Morocco and global adaptation options" IRES held Thursday, January 5, 2012, a study day to launch the study entitled "Environmental migration: issues for Morocco and ways to adapt". During this event, which brought together researchers involved in this study, the emphasis was put on the need to adopt a prospective approach in the conduct of the study while taking into account various mutations onto demographic, urban and environmental levels that Morocco is going to experience in the coming decades.

The debate has also highlighted the importance of examining public policy related to the management of migration caused by environmental factors (patterns of land use, rural development strategies, relations between Morocco / Europe / Africa policy natural resource management, health monitoring ...) in order to suggest innovative policies that Morocco could implement to address the risk of exacerbation of this type of migration in the medium and long-term horizons.
