Information

This book explores the circumstances under which migration can actually increase the resilience of households in the face of climate and environmental change. It analyzes vulnerable areas throughout the world and details potential policy responses that can help migration be a positive adaptation strategy for communities at risk. The book features several case studies that explore migration as a climate risk management strategy in the Pacific, Sub-Sahara Africa, Latin America, and Europe. It offers comparative analysis that helps readers identify common patterns concerning how mobility can enhance local resilience across large regional, socio-economic, cultural, and political variations, especially in the context of co-adaptation strategies. This book is supposed to help readers to better understand the extent that vulnerable communities throughout the world can adapt to climate and environmental change, which is especially important given the fact that future scenarios hint towards increasing challenges that will further strain the capacities of these regions.
