Environmentally Induced Displacements: Cyber-Seminar

The Population Environment Research Network (PERN) is hosting a cyber-seminar until 29 August on the topic of “Environmentally Induced Population Displacements”. The seminar is open to all who are interested and registration is free of charge.

The purpose of the cyber-seminar is to provide natural and social scientists with the opportunity to debate and discuss cutting-edge environmental research topics; in this case to determine if there is consensus on the magnitude of migration and movement which may be caused by environmental factors. Evidence exploring the effect of environmental factors, relative to other pressures, on migration and displacement will be considered.

The seminar will consider the potential future displacement which might result from climate change; particularly changes in rainfall patterns and sea level rise.
