About Us

Founded in 2010 in Brazil and Uruguay, the South American Network for Environmental Migrations – RESAMA is a pioneering initiative for coordination and mobilization of experts, researchers and practitioners to include the subject of environmental migration in public agendas in the region. This initiative, whose purpose is the full protection of the affected people and communities, has contributed to the development and integration of public policies and legislation on climate change, disasters, migration and human rights. Its members collaborate with organizations, networks and research groups related to the theme and are authors of scientific articles published in their countries and abroad.
