National Adaptation Plans: A Response to Climate-Induced Migration?
thesisposted on 24.05.2021, 06:53 by Emilia Vydelingum
This Major Research Paper examines the National Adaptation Plans of the Republic of the Maldives and Germany to determine if and how climate-induced migration is addressed. The paper examines how the receiving-migrant countries, and producing-migrant countries look at the forecasted issue from two different perspectives: securitization, and resiliency. In addition, this paper acknowledges that ad hoc temporary migration pathways have had success when dealing with environmental migration and determines that a formal change to the Convention Refugee definition is not necessary to address climate-induced migration. Key words: Climate Change; Climate-induced Migration; Refugees; National Adaptation Plans
