ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION, CLIMATE
CHANGE, MIGRATION AND YOUTH
Within the debates
on the consequences of climatic and ecological change,
international attention has become increasingly focussed on
between environmental change and human migration. Several
organisations such as UNHCR, UNFCCC, IOM and UNICEF are
addressing this issue.
Furthermore, a series of research initiatives focusing on
the link between
environmental change and migration has been set up in recent
years. These include
projects such as Environmental Change and Forced Migration
Scenarios (EACH FOR),
Foresight: Migration and Global Environmental Change project
“Where the rain falls”.

the conclusion that in the majority of cases,
it is not only environmental change in the form of
rapid-onset events (storms, flood
events, etc.) or gradual processes of ecological change
(soil erosion, sea-level rise, etc.)
that cause people to migrate. It is rather a complex set of
socio-economic, cultural, political and demographic factors
that influences or drives
