IOM provides a thorough compilation of resources regarding climate change and its effect on migration patterns.
Throughout history, people have moved to adjust to changes in their environment, but more recently climate change and its impacts have sparked renewed interest among academics and the international community in the relationship between migration, the environment and climate change. This bibliography is the first comprehensive collection of resources which specifically concentrates on migration, the environment and climate change. Books, journals, scientific papers, case studies and reports are all included, which are useful for those who want an introduction to this topic and also for those requiring more detailed resources in specific areas of the migration–environment nexus. The bibliography has various subheadings to make it user-friendly.
The CLIMIG database was compiled at the Institute of Geography of the University of Neuchatel (Switzerland). This bibliography will soon be followed by a book entitled People on the Move in a Changing Climate (Springer and IOM).
