Environmental migration is not a new topic at the level of international relations, but with the continuous occurrence of environmental phenomena such as land desertification, drought, and climate change in recent years, the issues surrounding the management and cooperation of environmental migration between actors have attracted widespread attention. This article is divided into five sections. The first section is a brief induction of the whole article. The second section focus on discussing and choosing the definition of environmental migration. The third section uses the analysis framework of social ecology to explain the connection and interaction between environmental change and migration. On this basis, the fourth section explains the opportunities and challenges for environmental migration governance in the current field of international cooperation. At the end of this paper, the last section concludes with several suggestions for how to improve international cooperation on environmental migration governance in the foreseeable future.
