Climate change as a migration trigger
A considerable number of migrants arriving in the EU are fleeing countries in Africa and Asia that are suffering from climate change. The EU-funded HABITABLE project will work to improve our understanding of how climate change affects migration and displacement standards. This multidisciplinary project will engage stakeholders from west and east Africa and south and south-east Asia. It will implement innovative methods based on the concept of habitability seeking to understand to what extent climate change leads to migration and how climate impacts the policies and perceptions that interact with each other to influence migration patterns. The project will introduce the concept of social tipping points that allow further understanding of how environmental variations can potentially launch social changes.
