    Focus on Migration, by the United Nations

    Acabo de recibir un mensaje de la lista de distribución del Servicio de Publicaciones de Naciones Unidas. Lo transcribo aquí abajo:

    Assessing the Costs and Impacts of Migration Policy: An International Comparison
    Print version $32.00

    Issues related to international migration now confront policymakers
    throughout the world. There have been few comparative studies of national
    policy evaluation approaches, methodologies and implementation mechanisms,
    and very little analysis on how much countries are actually spending on
    migration programmes. The study is very timely as it describes and compares
    the ways in which some of the major immigration countries in the world and
    some key international bodies assess the costs and impacts of their
    migration policies and programmes. An innovative feature of the publication
    is its comparison of government spending on migration programmes.



    Migration and Climate Change
    Print version $16.00

    This report focuses on the possible future scenarios for climate change,
    natural disasters and migration and development, looking to increase
    awareness and find answers to the challenges that lie ahead. It states that
    even though it is defined as growing crisis, the consequences of climate
    change for human population are unclear and unpredictable. The study points
    out that scientific basis for climate change is increasingly well
    established, and confirms that current predictions as to the "carrying
    capacity" in large parts of the world will be compromised by climate



    Climate Change and Migration: Improving Methodologies to Estimate Flows
    Print version $16.00

    Recent empirical studies have found that climate variability and migration
    are characterized by a non-linear relationship. This study explores the
    climate change impacts on migratory processes. It outlines the key elements
    of natural and human induced climate change of potential relevance to
    migration, discusses the current state of debate about the relationship
    between climate change and migration, and describes possible approaches and
    methodologies with which to further our understanding of climate
    change-related migration.

    En los próximos días intentaré conseguir estas publicaciones. Mientras tanto me pregunto si no tendrán las Naciones Unidas presupuesto para ofrecer estas publicaciones en pdf gratuitamente, sólo por el gusto de ofrecer conocimiento al mundo mundial...
