Alert sounded on ‘environmental migration’

Alert sounded on ‘environmental migration’ | adapting to climate change | Scoop.it

Tens of millions of people are moving to places that are more vulnerable to environmental disaster, particularly the urban flood plains of Asia and Africa, according to a UK government report.

 

By focusing mainly on the people displaced by drought, floods and famine, the world is neglecting those “trapped” in deteriorating environmental conditions or actually moving into them, says the study, prepared by the government’s Foresight programme that examines issues 20-80 years in the future.
