The great acceleration of economic activity and environmental degradation globally over the past decades is creating unprecedented challenges to the goals of sustainable development. In parallel, the redistribution of population through migration has created under-appreciated dynamics involving changes in human well-being, resource pressures, innovation and adaptation, and governance. The PNAS Special Feature to which the present paper serves as an Introduction explores the implications of migration for sustainable development.
