Global Migration Seminar: Why does a 1.5C warming goal matter to migration?

Seminarium

Changes in environment in which people live represent a critical factor for migration.
This talk focuses on slow-onset disasters and gradual environmental degradation, and the implications of these changes in terms of the populations affected, depending on the global climate warming targets, will be compared and discussed.

Changes in environment in which people live represent a critical factor for migration.

Climate change has been and will be an important part of environmental changes. We know that both gradual climate change such as global warming and slow- or sudden onset natural disasters like drought influence population migration patterns but in different ways.

This talk focuses on slow-onset disasters and gradual environmental degradation, especially aridification/desertification and reduced fresh water resources under current and future climates.

The implications of these changes in terms of the populations affected, depending on the global climate warming targets, will be compared and discussed.
