Climate Change Driven Migration
Partner: CSE India
The Centre for Science and Environment, New Delhi, is assisting SDPI in studying livelihood patterns in Pakistan and how climate may affect these patterns. As climate change impacts may trigger migration from some areas to urban cities, the project is endeavoring to establish whether these big cities will be able to accommodate the migrants displaced due to climate change. The research will cover both aspects; whether the cities have the capacity to absorb such migration and whether there is some kind of a policy which will allow the comfortable transition of migrants. The study is also investigating the possibility and extent of conflict between the migrants of climate change and the receiving population of the big cities. The project was implemented in the province of Sindh.
