"Navigating Complexity: Climate, Migration and Conflict in a Changing World"
This August 2015 Working Paper summary from the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, found in our CIAO database, states "Climate change is expected to contribute to the movement of people through a variety of means. There is also significant concern climate change may influence violent conflict... There are considerable misconceptions about why people move, how many move, and what effects they have. In a discussion paper for US AID’s Office of Conflict Management and Mitigation, the Environmental Change and Security Program presents a guide to this controversial and consequential nexus of global trends."
