This guidance document is based on how climate change increases the risk of natural disasters and places a strain on livelihoods, contributing to high-risk behaviours and other negative coping strategies among affected populations, such as resorting to unscrupulous recruitment agencies associated with human smuggling and trafficking. It explores  the links between climate change, human trafficking and smuggling in the Asia-Pacific region. To address these challenges, the document provides an overview of best practices from existing projects in the region.
