The impact of climate change on forced displacement

Understanding the impact of climate change on forced displacement is critical to informing solutions. The latest scientific findings confirm that climate change is a factor in displacement, albeit unquantified, and that climate and weather extremes are increasingly driving displacement. This paper examines the degree to which climate change is influencing and amplifying the multiple underlying risk drivers of displacement.

Labor Market Access and Outcomes for Refugees

Refugees’ right to work is protected by international law but often violated in practice. This Digest discusses the barriers that host governments impose on refugees’ labor market access and reviews the academic research on the effects of these policies and practices have on refugees and host communities.

Data and Research on Children and Youth in Forced Displacement: Identifying Gaps and Opportunities

Traditional approaches to managing forced displacement remain largely child blind. This third JDC Quarterly Digest highlights some examples of research which contribute to closing these gaps, by focusing on three main areas of investigation: mental health risks faced by forcibly displaced children; evidence from existing evaluations and assessments on ‘what works’; and emerging research into the use of technological innovations for the management of child migration and displacement data.

Forced Displacement and Educational Outcomes: Evidence, Innovations, and Policy Indications

This JDC Quarterly Digest focuses on the impacts of forced displacement on education outcomes for internally displaced populations, refugees and their host communities. It further looks at some of the policies and interventions that provide strong evidence for a shift towards national inclusive education systems and calls for strengthening the evidence base on what works to create sustainable, inclusive solutions.

Long-Term Consequences of Forced Displacement: Three Salient Themes

In this JDC Quarterly Digest, we seek to understand whether any short-term benefits from forced displacement accruing to host countries dissipate or persist over time, particularly when refugees return to their countries of origin or relocate elsewhere. Additionally, in contexts where large inflows of refugees lead to adverse impacts on host communities in the short-term, whether these problems resolve in the longer-term.
