On #WorldEnvironmentDay, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) joins the voices of other UN entities in launching the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030, for migrants and for nature.
Climate change and environmental degradation are the defining issues of our time.
Climate change affects how, when, and where people migrate, worldwide.
There is no region in the world that has avoided population movements linked to adverse climate impacts.
To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals; to implement the Paris Agreement, and the Global Compact for Migration; to prevent forced migration and displacement; we need to revive our ecosystems, we need to build back better after the COVID-19 pandemic.
On #WorldEnvironmentDay, IOM reaffirms its commitment to build back better for the people and for the planet.
Together, we can be the #GenerationRestoration !
