Climate refugees: the communities displaced by global warming
With climate change set to force millions of people from their homes due to more frequent extreme weather events and rising sea levels, one academic has been travelling the world to see how the people facing relocation feel. ‘There’s just no place like home,’ says University of New South Wales lecturer Johannes Luetz. ‘People want to stay where they are,’ he explains, citing work in the Maldives to artificially raise islands. For others, forward planning and community education are just as important as addressing the ‘protection gaps’ prevalent at the international level.
