Climate change could drive vast human migrations
Date:6/10/2009

countries reach an agreement to stem greenhouse gases during this December's United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. But even if this deadline is met, most scientists say some amount of climate change is now inevitable. To mitigate resulting migrations, the report recommends that nations prioritize the most vulnerable populations and invest there in defensive measures, including irrigation technology that uses less water; low-till agriculture; economic diversification; and official systems to manage natural disasters. It says nations must agree on how to resettle populations of low-lying areas, and strengthen the ability of emigrants to send remittances to those left in affected regions.

"New thinking and practical approaches are needed to address the threats that climate-related migration poses to human security and well-being," said coauthor Koko Warner, head of the UN University's Institute for Environment and Human Security.
