Assessing the evidence


The national assessment report brings together available evidence on the climate change, environment and migration nexus in the Independent State of Papua New Guinea (hereafter PNG).1 The aim of the report is twofold, such that: (a) it maps the complex relationship between migration, environment and climate change by looking at human mobility due to environmental change; and (b) it examines the existing policy framework and offers guidance to include environmental migration in PNGís national planning.
