Human mObility and cliMate change in the European context

Project description

A closer look at climate-induced migration in Europe

In recent years, millions of south Asians have been displaced by the effects of climate change. Tens of millions of Africans will likely experience a rise in climate-induced displacement by 2050. Despite the increase in climate-induced migration studies, research on the topic seems to be a prerogative of researchers from the Global North focusing on case studies in the Global South. The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions HOME project will address this geographical bias. It will adopt a political ecology approach that works in the European context. HOME will focus on the case of Portugal and the effects of slow-onset events (sea level rise) and sudden-onset events (wildfires) on human mobility.
