Refugees and the education of host populations: Evidence from the Syrian inflow to Jordan

This paper examines the effect of Syrian refugees on the educational outcomes of Jordanian students. The focus is on the period after the mass arrival of Syrian refugees in Jordan, which began in early 2013. The government of Jordan allowed most school-age Syrians to attend public schools, resulting in Syrian students comprising approximately 7 percent of the total population in Jordanian public schools.

Characterization of Vulnerability of Internally Displaced Persons in Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger Using Respondent-Driven Sampling (RDS)

This paper characterizes the vulnerabilities of IDPs in Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger using respondent-driven sampling (RDS) techniques. The IDP population in the central Sahel region grew from around 1.1 million at the end of 2019 to over 2.6 million at the end of 2021. Burkina Faso has the largest and fastest-growing IDP population with nearly 1.6 million IDPs as of December 2021, followed by Mali (401,736) and Niger (264,257).

No longer a blind spot: Climate change adaptation policies must address forced displacement

This brief article advocates for a systemic, long-term, development-oriented approach to climate-induced displacement, alongside humanitarian responses.
The authors draw on an analysis of 42 National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and 166 Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). NAPs are submitted by developing states to Conferences of the Parties (COP) and detail their medium- and long-term adaptation priorities and strategies. NDCs are climate action plans to cut emissions and adapt to climate impacts.

Local Responses to Climate Change and Disaster-Related Migration in Solomon Islands

Communities in Solomon Islands are acutely vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Eighty percent of the population live in coastal areas vulnerable to sea level rise, coastal erosion, saltwater intrusion, and severe weather events such as drought, tropical cyclones, and flooding. Most services, infrastructure, and agricultural production are also concentrated in these vulnerable coastal areas. Climate-related displacement due to natural disasters is already occurring, including relocation of whole communities from low-lying atolls to urban areas, as well as some rural-to-rural migration.
