Climate change and migration in developing countries: evidence and implications for PRISE countries


Badly managed migration is associated with high economic, social and psychological costs. Policy intervention is required to reduce the potential negative impacts in both the sending and receiving regions. This report aims to inform the development community about the effects of climate change on migration patterns within and out of developing countries. It concentrates on the economic aspects of migration and on information relevant for the six countries that are the focus of PRISE: Burkina Faso, Senegal, Kenya, Tanzania, Pakistan and Tajikistan.
