Human mobility caused by disasters and climate change in Central America
This report contributes to a better understanding of the evidence on the link between human mobility, environment, disasters and climate change through a mapping of Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama. The study also aims to: verify the political and legal responses to this nexus in the seven countries of Central America; formulate recommendations or general guidelines for the development of data harvesting mechanisms; and verify the extent to which the definition of climate migration proposed by IOM is applied in the region. This research is part of the collaboration of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) with the General Secretariat of the Central American Integration System, other regional institutions and partners, in the process of supporting and implementing the Plan of Action for the Comprehensive Care of Migration in the Region (PAIM-SICA).
