Is climate migration a thing?
In recent years, linking climate change to migration have been more common in both policy and public discourse. The COP has been a key forum for establishing this connection on the climate policy agenda and introducing the notion of “climate migration” to the debate.
But what exactly is implied by this concept, and what are the potentials and pitfalls of linking climate change and migration? On the basis of a broad reflection on migration dynamics in a West African context, the presentation explores this questions through critical discourses analysis and lessons learned from policy engagement on African migration governance.
