Climate Displacement Series: Migration & Receiving Communities
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.
