The impacts of climate change affect people all over the world – which has led governments to move entire communities impacted by rising sea levels, coastal erosion, flooding or drought – and more countries are expected to engage in climate resettlement. However, moving people from one area to another is a complex operation in which people’s existing livelihood strategies are at risk – and sometimes, climate change is used as a pretext for carrying out long-standing goals of moving certain populations. In this episode of DIIS Podcast, we look at some cases of climate resettlement and point to a number of important issues that need to be addressed, both by governments and in an international framework. Guests: Lily Salloum Lindegaard and Mikkel Funder.
