Center for American Progress (CAP)
This report - the first in a series of papers from the Center for American Progress that will examine the nexus of climate change, migration, and conflict and its implications - argues that migration is a proactive adaptation strategy for local populations under pressure due to increased environmental change. The series will highlight the overlays of these three factors in key regions around the world and examine the ways in which U.S. policy must adapt to meet the challenges they present. It investigates the following regions: Northwest Africa, South Asia, the Andes and China.
