PODCAST: When people move by UKCCMC

PODCAST: When people move. Understanding how climate change creates the movement of people 

UK Climate Change and Migration Coalition

Over the last two years we have collected testimonies from people who have moved as a result of climate-linked disasters. By exploring these stories we can begin to answer questions about how climate change is creating new patterns of migration and displacement. We can also begin to ask how life on a hotter planet might mean living with new kinds of disasters, and coping with the displacement they create.

The programme uses testimonies from Pakistan, the Philippines, Somalia and Mexico to examine how people have moved in response to disasters.
