Migration for climate action: how labour mobility can help the green transition

Working papers

Written by Nathaniel Mason, Ipek Gencsu, Joseph Feyertag, Alexandra Löwe

Efforts to facilitate the economic integration of migrants are currently not aligned with green skills development and job creation, which are themselves inadequate. Similarly, there is a lack of coordination between international cooperation to support green transitions and green skills development, and international cooperation on global migration policies.
