In the last decade discussions over the nexus between the impact of climate change and the subsequent migration of people has gradually increased. This is especially so within global policy discourse, with growing awareness of the need to develop both policy frameworks and concrete solutions to support those migrating in a changing climate. This rising interest has influenced a number of key stakeholders – from United Nations and intergovernmental organisations to civil society and non-governmental entities – to intensify their efforts to bring these key questions to the fore of the global agenda. As a result, what used to be a little-known issue is now examined in a variety of policy fora, more and more reported by the media and widely studied within academia worldwide. 1
