The essay analyses the ways for labour integration of environmental migrants, which at present are only limitedly satisfied by the national regulatory framework. With reference to the recognition of international protection for environmental migrants, which represents the first step on the road to labour integration, the Italian perspective appears particularly interesting. Here, in fact, on the one hand an attempt has been made – albeit without fully satisfying results, up to now – to adapt, often in Courts, the classic international protection tools (and, in particular, humanitarian and special protection) to the needs of environmental migrants; on the other hand, ad hoc legal instruments, such as the residence permit for natural disasters, have been created.
