Abstract

In 21st century, climate change has emerged as one of the major threats to mankind. Although climate change is a global phenomenon, but it’s not affecting the world equally. The International Federation of Red Cross claims that in recent years— more than war and persecution—climate change disasters are a bigger cause of population displacement. This poses new challenges to the Global South. In the developing countries, it is not only climate change but other push factors which have compelled people to migrate internally or internationally. The study explores the causes of climate-induced migration and its impact on developing countries. The paper is based on qualitative research. To deal with climate-induced migration, the Global South requires a new framework for managing potential movements. It also need to collaborate and work on mitigation, adaptation, and risk
reduction strategies at national and regional levels.
