Migration and its interdependencies with water scarcity, gender and youth employment

30 October 2017

Climate change, water stress and environmental degradation are affecting large parts of the population around the world, causing major threats to international peace, human security and wellbeing. It has been estimated that by 2050 between 150 and 200 million people could be displaced as a consequence of phenomena, such as desertification, sea level rise and increased extreme weather events.

This publication seeks to assess the interdependencies among water scarcity, youth unemployment and migration, as well as provides an overview of migration hotspots, in particular on the originating and transit countries in Africa, the Mediterranean, the Middle East and South and East Asia.
