Abstract

Climate-induced migration presents a growing challenge with significant humanitarian, social, and policy implications. This article examines the complex relationship between climate change and migration, exploring environmental impacts, socioeconomic consequences, and the different types of climate-induced migration, including internal displacement and cross-border migration. The article also highlights the current challenges in managing climate-induced displacement, such as legal and policy gaps, human rights and protection concerns, capacity constraints, and social integration and cultural challenges. The article emphasizes the importance of developing comprehensive policies and strategies to address climate-induced migration. It outlines potential approaches, such as enhancing global and regional frameworks, legally recognizing climate migrants, expanding support for regional and international cooperation, integrating climate-induced migration into national climate change and development plans, and investing in climate-resilient infrastructure and livelihoods. It also discusses case studies of successful policy responses to climate-induced migration and offers lessons learned and best practices. In conclusion, the article underscores the significance of proactive policy development, collaboration, and ongoing research and monitoring of climate-induced migration trends. By adopting best practices and learning from existing successes, policymakers can develop robust strategies to manage the growing challenge of climate-induced displacement and support vulnerable communities in the face of climate change.
