Use of new data sources for measuring international migration
Migration and other forms of cross-border mobility are issues of high policy importance. Demands for statistics in these areas have further increased in light of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 2018 Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration. The statistical community continues to be challenged to capture international migration and cross-border mobility in a way that would meet the growing needs of users.
IOM Global Data Institute Thematic Brief #1: Evidence Summary on Climate Change and the Future of Human Mobility
In the past decade, an estimated 21.6 million people annually were internally displaced by climate-related hazards worldwide (IDMC, 2022). Climate change is increasing these hazards across many parts of the world. In addition to concerted climate mitigation, navigating these challenges requires effective, evidence-based policy measures that support people at risk.
People on the Move in a Changing Climate – Linking Policy, Evidence and Action
An extensive array of international agreements and frameworks attest to the urgency of addressing climate change and human mobility together, as climate change, environmental degradation and disasters reshape contemporary human mobility patterns. It is now time to put these agreements into practice and step-up implementation on human mobility in contexts of climate change. People on the Move in a Changing Climate provides insights and recommendations on how to do so.
A Region on the Move 2021: East and Horn of Africa

World Population Prospects 2022
UN DESA found that from 1980 to 2000, population growth in high-income countries was mainly the result of the balance of more births than deaths (104 million). This was twice the contribution of net international migration to population growth (44 million). But between 2000 and 2020, the contribution of international migration to population growth in high-income countries exceeded the balance of births over deaths (net migrant inflow of 80.5 million vs 66.2 million births over deaths).
