Internal Environmental Migration Monitoring and Emergency Program (IEMMEP) is the authoritative source of data and analysis on Environmental Migration in Uganda.
IEMMEP was formed in late 2019 as part of the African Centre for Climate Governance (ACCG) program, to offer a rigorous, independent and trusted service to the government, UN agencies (UNHCR), CSOs, International Development and Humanitarian organisations.
Our work informs policy and operational decisions that improve the lives of the millions of people who are at risk of becoming displaced by Environmental Developments/Activities and Climatic Changes.
To provide high-quality data, analysis and expertise on environmental migration with the aim of informing policy and operational decisions that can reduce the risk of future migration and improve the lives of internal displaced persons (IDPs) at National level.
What We Do
We provide verified, consolidated and multi-sourced estimates of the number of people displaced or at risk of becoming displaced by disasters and environmental projects across Uganda.
We complement this national data with interdisciplinary research into the drivers, patterns and impacts of environmental migrations across different districts situations, contexts and scenarios.
Using this evidence, we provide tailor-made advice and support to inform national and regional policy-making.
