This report examines the links between migration, environment and climate change in Mozambique through a holistic and comprehensive lens, highlighting the ways in which these topics can be integrated into the country's legal framework.
This working paper considers the climate vulnerability of rural agricultural livelihoods in semi-arid regions of Pakistan. The study looks at how vulnerable such livelihoods are to climate change and climate impacts and how migration can be supported as an adaptation strategy if these livelihoods continue to be threatened by climate risks.

The environment has always been a driver of migration, as people flee to survive natural disasters or, faced with harsh and deteriorating environmental conditions, move to seek opportunities elsewhere. Climate change is expected to exacerbate sudden- and slow-onset disasters and gradual environmental degradation. |
