Organised under the framework of the water and migration working group of WASAG (Global Framework for Water Scarcity in Agriculture) and the MARIS network (Migration, Agriculture and Resilience: Initiative for Sustainability), this webinar aims to share knowledge on linkages between water insecurity and outmigration from rural areas.

Many discourses, pre-conceptions, and controversies surround the migration debate. Much of these conversations focus on international migration from lower income countries to richer countries, providing simplistic perceptions about the motivations and impacts of migration. The webinar will present evidence and knowledge gaps to start a discussion on implications for potential interventions, highlighting issues of water insecurity and impacts on community members left behind.
