Climate Migration

Human migration is an important climate change adaptation strategy, but there are many gaps in our understanding of the complex, multi-faced interaction between environmental change and human mobility. Estimates for the number of environmental migrants by 2050 range from 25 million to 1 billion, so understanding when, where and how people will move (if at all), what it means to be a climate migrant and how best to govern the problem are crucial. In this Focus Collection, Nature Climate Change presents a range of Comments, News, Perspectives and primary research exploring these questions.
