Slow onset processes have been increasingly linked to human mobility in the global policy space. Yet, land and forest degradation and desertification (LFDD) as a driver of human displacement and its implications for long-term development policy have received less attention. This paper aims to fill this gap by investigating to what extent the topic has been integrated into the national climate and desertification policy frameworks of countries in Latin American and the Caribbean – a region threatened by significant LFDD. The analysis builds upon a review of published literature and policy documents. The findings suggest that national policies insufficiently address the complex nature of the human mobility – LFDD nexus mostly through sustainable land management and livelihood approaches.
