Migration, risk management and climate change : evidence and policy responses. by Andrea Milan( )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and German and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited volume explores the circumstances under which vulnerable communities can better adapt to climate and environmental change, and focuses in particular on the centrality of migration as a resilience and adaptation strategy for communities at risk. The book features important case studies where migration is being used as a risk management strategy in the Pacific, Sub-Sahara Africa, Latin America, and Europe. Its comparative analysis reveals common patterns in enhancing local resilience through migration across diverse regional, socio-economic, cultural, and political contexts. This book is a contribution to the global discussion about the future of migration policy, especially as climate and environmental change is expected to grow as one of the most pressing challenges of our time
Environmental change, adaptation and migration : bringing in the region( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, migration and mobility have increasingly been promoted as one possible adaptive strategy within climate change scenarios and environmental change, and even constituting a solution for locally problematic situations. This edited collection presents empirical and theoretical insights into the current debate on environmental change, adaptation, and migration by analysing these issues from a regional perspective. Individual chapters focus on countries in the global South which are already subject to ongoing environmental degradation: Sudan, Mexico, the Philippines, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Ghana. People living in these countries are likely to suffer from growing ecological inequalities. The contributors call for a greater involvement of the local population in empirical studies, for the acknowledgment of their agency, and for a systematic link between development studies and migration studies. The book attempts to overcome the strongly policy-driven discourse encouraging the research community to focus on the regional setting."--Pub. desc

Catastrophes, changements environnementaux et migration : aperçus issus de milieux vulnérables en Haïti by Andrea Milan( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

La présente étude a été réalisée dans le cadre du Projet "Migration, environnement et changement climatique : Données à l'usage des politiques" (MECLEP). Nous explorons, dans cette étude de cas, la façon dont les différentes formes de mobilité humaine peuvent soit contribuer, soit entraver l'adaptation à l'environnement et au changement climatique. Nous analysons aussi dans ce rapport les liens entre ces formes de mobilité et la vulnérabilité des ménages dans trois municipalités haïtiennes (Gonaïves, La Marmelade et Port-au-Prince), sélectionnées en raison de leur vulnérabilité face aux changements climatiques et environnementaux. Il ressort du rapport que les ménages comptant au moins un migrant sont moins vulnérables que ceux qui n'en comptent aucun. Parmi toutes les formes de mobilité étudiées, les mouvements migratoires sur le court terme sont associés à un taux de vulnérabilité plus élevé que les autres, tandis que les déplacements saisonniers et circulaires semblent, eux, s'inscrire dans la stratégie de diversification des moyens de subsistance la plus prometteuse. Les résultats de cette étude montrent donc qu'il conviendrait de renforcer les politiques visant à accroître le potentiel que recèle la migration en tant que stratégie d'adaptation aux changements environnementaux et climatiques, tout en prévenant et en réduisant les risques liés au déplacement. Outre le projet de la politique nationale migratoire d'Haïti (actuellement en discussion), on observe une interconnexion entre la migration, la vulnérabilité des ménages et plusieurs domaines d'action politique, dans lesquels il serait important d'intégrer la thématique de la migration, en tenant compte des spécificités des femmes haïtiennes
