Published by Kayly
This report, commissioned by the World Bank and written by Jon Barnett and Michael Webber of the University of Melbourne, explains the ways in which climate change may increase future migration, and the risks associated with such migration. It also examines the way some of the migration that will arise from climate change may enhance the capacity of communities to adapt to climate
change.
