The links between climate change, disasters, migration, and social resilience in Asia: A literature review

Source(s):  Asian Development Bank (ADB)

This paper provides an overview of the relevant literature on disasters and migration to present predicted impacts and likely trends on mobility, economic growth, and social resilience in Asia. Moreover, the paper details the story of how disasters may affect mobility, from displacement to voluntary migration to “trapped populations.” It also provides an overview of the “migration as adaptation” literature, which shows that planned and sustained movement may help individuals weather shocks and diversify income in the face of disaster, as well as the uneven outcomes of disaster-related remittances in Asia. Ultimately, the report aims to show the diverse ways in which disaster-related migration may affect economic growth and social resilience in Asia.
