This document discusses the links between climate change, agriculture and migration from a global perspective and highlights the key factors to consider for improving food security, resilience and risk reduction. The document first discusses migration and agriculture in the context of climate change, which drives migration not only through extreme weather but through its impact on agricultural livelihoods. This document also addresses migration challenges and opportunities under climate change, namely through the management of migration flows as a strategy for adapting to climate change and reducing vulnerabilities.
While the impacts of climate change on agriculture and food security are relatively well established, the cascading effects of climate change on migration and its consequences for agriculture have not been adequately assessed and addressed. Efforts are required to bridge this knowledge gap.
