This book examines the linkages between environmental change and forced migration. This has been a headline topic during the past few years with predictions of “millions of refugees”. It presents case studies from across the world of responses to climate change as well as other environmental changes and examines the role that environmental change plays among the other factors that lead to a decision to migrate.
