EUR-OPA/IOM: a new study says the inclusion of migrants in initiatives can contribute to preventing, preparing for and responding to disasters in Europe

The Council of Europe’s EUR-OPA Major Hazards Agreement and the UN’s International Organisation for Migration (IOM) published on 19th of July 2017 a joint study on the benefits of involving migrants in disaster risk reduction initiatives.

The study, entitled Migrants in Disaster Risk Reduction: Practices for Inclusion, has been launched in room XVIII of the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. It aims to highlight ways to better integrate migrants into the decision-making, policy-setting and implementation processes of disaster risk reduction initiatives.
