People in the Pacific are increasingly using migration as a way of protecting their livelihoods in the face of climate change. At the moment many are using temporary migration to help their communities adapt. But what happens when climate change means people have to move permanently? And what can be done to protect the rights of people who move? We interview Sophia Kagan who works with the International Labor Organisation about their work on migration and climate change in the Pacific.
Hurricane Katrina: 10 years of recovery and reflection
In June UK Climate Change and Migration Coalition chaired a session at EDD 2015 looking at the connections between climate change and migration – and the policies that can be used to address the connection. This podcast is a recording of the debate in which a number of policy makers and researchers reflect on the issues.
Both climate change and migration are complex and politically sensitive topics. This briefing, a collaboration between the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the UK Climate Change and Migration Coalition (UKCCMC), explores what recent research and policy developments tell us about the linkages between the two issues and how we can respond.
Environmental refugee status is also attracting its fare share of detractors particularly in the Pacific where the term is considered degrogatory and not an accurate description of their circumstances.
