Abstract: "This report uses nationally representative data from Cambodia to analyze the links between environmental shocks or stress and international migration. More specifically it asks whether village reports of flood, drought, and poor rainfall in 2008 are associated with household out-migration to Thailand in the following year, and what factors mediate these relationships.
The TransRe project offers a fresh perspective on the environment-migration nexus. It starts from the assumption that, regardless of the accuracy of the projections of future environmental changes, migration is already occurring and will continue to be a major dynamic of global change. Migration is connecting people, transforming places, and facilitating flows of knowledge and resources, and thus creating networked and interconnected translocal spaces.
