Throughout the year, VOICE produces and disseminates key documents reflecting on humanitarian aid issues at the EU level and from an NGO perspective. They are addressed to decision-makers within the European institutions, at the National level, to NGO networks and other stakeholders of the humanitarian community, as well as to the VOICE members. Some documents are produced by the VOICE Secretariat with the support of VOICE members while others are publications from members and other key stakeholders in the humanitarian sector. 

Please note that members-only documents will not be visible unless you are logged in.

    Tags: Climate

    Case study research in four countries to explore the link between the environmental crisis and migration within the #ClimateOfChange campaign led by WeWorld and funded by the European Union in the framework of the DEAR Programme.
    Who is a climate migrant? And how can we discuss the complex nexus between the climate crisis and migration in a manner that is productive and beneficial to those whose lives and livelihoods are most at risk from the climate crisis? These are some of the questions that this report grapples with and that have been the focus of much discussion throughout the #ClimateOfChange project. In seeking to answer them, the University of Bologna draws upon empirical research from four case study countries: Cambodia, Guatemala, Kenya and Senegal. Research was conducted by an interdisciplinary research team combining sociological, agricultural and food systems, human-geographical, and legal perspectives, together with partner Organisations in the field.
