BeschreibungScientific Essay from the year 2014 in the subject Economy - Environment economics, grade: 75, University of Sheffield (Department of Politics), course: The Politics of Global Migration, language: English, abstract: Environment change not only threatens lives of people living in sensitive regions through direct impact like hurricane, drought, flood or fire, it also indirectly affects the sources of livelihood by affecting crop production, threatening livestock or creating resource scarcity for industrial sector. Trapped in such a scenario, people react in one of the following ways: 1) they migrate (migration) or are forced to migrate (displacement); 2) they migrate to even more environmentally threatening places (desperation); and 3) they are not able to migrate due to lack of financial, social or demographic strengths (devastation). This essay discusses the effects of environment change on economic, social, political, demographic and environmental drivers of migration and elaborates on the possible outcomes of this effect by citing past examples from Asia. And finally it highlights the debate around migration as a problem or a solution with respect to environment change.
