Humanity is on the move.Combined, these factors are contributing to human displacement and unsafe migration on an unprecedented scale. And the levels of both will only rise as the effects of climate change gradually erode millions of people's livelihoods.Second, for the first time in history, the international community is coming together to build a framework to manage international migration. Intergovernmental negotiations started in February 2018 with the aim of adopting a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM). The GCM promises to provide a sound framework for taking action that addresses climate-driven migration. The GCM represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to set in place an internationally-agreed system for managing safe and orderly migration.Climate change and environmental degradation are creating unacceptable levels of human insecurity.The year 2018 presents us with a unique opportunity to think and plan for the decades ahead, by stepping up action on both migration and the environment.
