This study established an analytical framework to help place migration within broader development processes, including other sectoral legislation, in order to address these intricate interconnections. The creation of cross-sector policy coherence can be facilitated by adapting this framework to future policy development. This element also stressed the significance of comprehending migration typologies. Which types of migration are pursued depends on a variety of circumstances, including distance, timing, and other related variables. This framework analyzes probable climate and non-climate drivers. These are then split into agricultural, environmental, economic, and sociopolitical categories and evaluated in connection to migration consequences. The complex interlinkages between migration destination communities and home communities, where migrants send money, return with new knowledge and skills (social remittances), and invest in new forms of economic activity, are further strengthened by significant feedback loops from outcomes to impacts and back to drivers.
