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.
