E-000482/2019(ASW)
Answer given by Mr Avramopoulos on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-000482/2019

As stated in its reply to Written Question E-005906/2018, the Commission acknowledges that adverse effects of climate change could act as threat multipliers, in particular in situation of fragility, and result in migratory movements. Climate, environmental degradation and natural disasters increasingly interact with the drivers of refugee movements. Further informed analysis is necessary to better understand the inter-linkages between climate change and displacement.

As indicated in its reply to Written Question E-006802/2017, the Commission refers the Honourable Member to the following sources for additional information: the EU-funded project by the International Organisation for Migration ‘Migration, Environment and Climate Change: Evidence for Policy project’(1) and the work of the Joint Research Centre’s Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography under its research priority ‘forced displacement’(2).
