Updated 6 December 2012, 9:46 AEST

Australia must prepare for environmental migrants.

The statement was made during a presentation by a non-resident of the Lowy Institute Fellow.

Dr Khalid Koser, from the Geneva Centre for Security Policy argued that Australia needs to develop a national policy framework on environmental migration.

He told Geraldine Coutts that environmental change in the Pacific will see many more migrants from the region arrive in Australia during the next decade, but we're not yet prepared.
