Will climate migration lead to conflict?

Mar 15, 2020, 08:00 AM
Climate migration hit the headlines in January, when the United Nations made a landmark ruling about the legal rights of those displaced by a climate crisis.

The UN High Commission for Refugees has warned that millions of people could become climate refugees in the coming years, and meanwhile, tensions over scarcity are stoking fears of conflict.

With temperatures and anxieties rising, how do we prepare for changing human mobility and new kinds of conflict?

Joining Prof. Millican in this episode is Lisa Thalheimer, a 
DPhil student whose research focuses on quantifying the impacts of human mobility and extreme weather events, linked to climate change.
