Water Stress and Human Migration: A Global, Georeferenced Review of Empirical Research
Author : David Wrathall, Jamon Van Den Hoek | 2016
Published By: FAO
This report assesses and maps 184 peer-reviewed, empirical research articles selected
for their focus on linkages between water stress and human migration. First and
most importantly, this literature asserts that migration is universal. Migration is an
extremely common social process and is normal in almost every society on earth. Safe,
orderly and regular migration can and do benefit both home and host communities.
Environment- influenced migration is rarely, if ever, a resource threat to the regions to
which people move.
