Climate change makes people too poor to migrate: Study

Posted in Life Style & Fashion Videos| #News

New Delhi: Climate change increases migration worldwide. Over the past 30 years, however, this effect has been considerably reduced as climate change weakens economic growth in the countries of the Global South. This is the research result of a team from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research comparing the observed migration flows to a scenario without the effects of climate change. In their study, the PIK scientists focused on an important factor influencing migration flows -- a country's income level. They examined how climate change affects international migration by analysing countries' income levels from 1990 to 2020. So, very poor people often stay in their home country, even if they are in need or would like to migrate for other reasons.
