Since poverty, both income and non-income, is a key factor of vulnerability, it argues that policies need to address its underlying causes in order to be effective. Keywords: Adaptation; Mobility; Income diversification Introduction Migration has become increasingly important in the context of climate change debates.
Earlier catastrophic predictions of environmental degradation resulting in mass migration and displacement have given way to greater attention to migration as one of the main adaptive responses by vulnerable populations.
There is still much that remains to be understood, however, about how environmental degradation as a factor of mobility interacts with other factors – socio-economic, cultural, demographic and political.
A better understanding of these admittedly complex dynamics is necessary to achieve a better sense of what can be done to support and accommodate migration in a changing climate. This ...
