Atlas des migrations environnementales

Environnemtal Migrations

Today, one inhabitant out of seven on the planet is a migrant. The degradation of the environment is a major cause of this unprecedented human mobility – a reality that is widely ignored and which the evolution of climate change will only amplify.

Coordinated by three of the best experts in environmental migration, with the help of cartographers and specialists in computer graphics, this pioneering work provides the first comprehensive overview of the state of affairs in this area. With more than 100 maps and graphics, it covers all the aspects and possible solutions to this major 21st century challenge.

Gaining a better understanding of these migrations means shedding light on their environmental causes, which overlap with the other factors – political, socio-economic, psychological – that push individuals to departure or exodus. This means anticipating population movements and enabling rational accompaniment of these movements when they occur. It means contributing to the indispensable process of adapting to the consequences of climate change.
