Audio: Climate Change-related Human Migration—Policy Measures

An audio podcast to learn about climate change-related human migration and its outcomes, and to initiate a discussion on policy measures that can help in better management of population movement caused by climate change.

Students will learn about climate change-related events that may cause human migration, the types of climate change-related migration, the positive and negative outcomes of such population movement, and policies that could help in better preparation and handling of displacement and resettlement.

Use this tool to help your students find answers to:

  1. What are the adverse health outcomes of climate change-related human migration?
  2. What are the positive effects of climate change-related human migration?
  3. Propose and discuss a policy measure that can facilitate the resettlement of vulnerable populations living in low-lying coastal areas that are threatened by sea-level rise.
