10 largest displacement events of 2016 were climate related
In 2016 alone, over 24 million people were displaced by unexpected climate-related disasters. It is commonly understood that there is a correlation between climate change and human mobility, however, the lack of evidence-based findings has hindered necessary changes to being made in this regard. It is extremely difficult to track migration caused by climate change; there are numerous other factors that could also contribute to migration, and some may even be in combination with climate change.
