The relationship between climate change and migration is complex. A series of webinars lead by Alex Randall who runs our Climate and Migration programme sheds light on some of the many questions that come along with this topic.

For millions of people, migration is already how they are adapting to climate change. Droughts, sea level rise, hurricanes and floods are all forcing people to move. However, the way that people move, and where they will move from and to is often unexpected. Some people will have no choice about how or when they move. When disasters unfold slowly, some people may decide to migrate and find alternative work. Some people may decide to move as a way of adapting to climate change impacts – with or without the help of their government. How will climate change re-shape patterns of migration and displacement?
