Climate Displacement Series: Migration & Receiving Communities

Created: 11/02/2020 -

Abstract

This is session four of the National Adaptation Forum's virtual Climate Displacement Series, organized by EcoAdapt. 

Climate models predict that tens of millions of people will be displaced from coastal areas alone by 2100 in the U.S. Additional climate impacts may lead to an even greater number of displaced people, all leading to migration at local, regional, national, or international scales. As climate-related migration increases, receiving communities must consider effective policies for population increases and changes. The webinar centers a discussion on climate migration impacts and considerations for receiving communities.

Since its founding, CDM has been driven by its mission to improve the conditions of low-wage workers in the United States. Our story begins in 2004, when Founder and Executive Director Rachel Micah-Jones traveled to Mexico to meet with several of her clients in their home community. Working as a farmworker attorney in rural Florida, Micah-Jones had witnessed the abuse of migrant workers on the job and the powerful threats of retaliation that silenced them. These clients were no exception.
