Addressing Climate Change and Migration in Asia and the Pacific and elsewhere

Asia Development Bank

This report marks the conclusion of an Asian Development Bank (ADB)-financed technical assistance project launched to generate policy responses to climate-induced migration. The report was prepared by Bart W. Édes, ADB Regional and Sustainable Development Department; François Gemenne, IDDRI – Sciences Po Paris; Jonathan Hill, Fount LLC; and Diana Reckien, formerly of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and now with Columbia University’s Center for Research on Environmental Decisions. Robert J. Dobias, ADB’s former senior advisor on climate change, provided valuable advice. Yukiko Ito, Honey May Manzano-Guerzon, Chet Japson, and Princess Lubag helped to ensure smooth project implementation and coordination, assisted with the publication process, and organized consultative and knowledge-sharing events that generated inputs for the report. Hugh Finlay edited the document.
