Climate Change and Migration: Exploring the Impacts of Climate Change on People’s Livelihoods and Migration in the Greater Mekong Sub-region

 This publication is the outcome of a research project carried out together with the Asian Migrant Centre (AMC) and supported by the Rockefeller Foundation, aimed at contributing to a greater understanding of climate change in the GMS. Primary research carried out in two case study communities, Ma Gyi Chay Htaut Village, Magway Region, in Myanmar’s central ‘Dry Zone’ and Thanh An Commune, Vinh Thanh District, Can Tho City, in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam indicates that environmental changes are being felt by communities, and these changes are negatively impacting people’s lives and influencing migration.
