In search of shelter: mapping the effects of climate change on human migration and displacement


This report explores how environmental shocks and stresses, especially those related to climate change, can push people to leave their homes in search of “greener pastures” … or just to survive. In order to make informed decisions, policymakers and development actors need a better understanding of the linkages between environmental change, displacement and migration. This report contains empirical evidence from a first-time, multi-continent survey of environmental change and migration original maps illustrating how, and where, the impacts of climate change may prompt significant displacement and migration together with policy recommendations.
