Climate change: a complex driver of rural migration

Bourgeois R., Brunelle T., Losch B., Prati G.. 2017. In : Mercandalli Sara (ed.), Losch Bruno (ed.). Rural Africa in motion. Dynamics and drivers of migration South of the Sahara. Rome : FAO, CIRAD, p. 44-45.

The link between climate change and rural migration is complex. Several entangled, often self-reinforcing factors are at play. The combination of climatic events and other natural, social, political and economic factors affect populations living in already vulnerable and fragile environments. Understanding how climate change interacts with other migration drivers requires disentangling this complexity in order to design adaptation strategies that address the root causes of vulnerability and tackle the challenges of climate related migration.
