Drivers and Consequences of Climate-Induced Migration in Sub-Saharan Africa

Project: Research project

Description

The proposed study is a two-year project to examine the climate determinants of internal migration in eight African countries and the socio-economic implications of environmental migration in receiving areas. The subcontractor will provide the analysis using the IPUMS migration and employment data (from 23 censuses), as well as geospatial data on climate, nightlights and vegetation to quantify the socio-economic consequences of climate refugees. Following the analysis, Dr. Mueller will assist in writing a paper describing her analysis and the analysis provided by her co-author.
