Abstract

"Migration, in the face of environmental change, may not be just part of the problem but also part of the solution" (UK Government Office for Science, 2011:10). This essay examines the evidence behind this claim through an exploration of the problems commonly associated with migration and a demonstration of the notion that migration may constitute a solution to the challenges faced by affected communities by increasing their resilience in the face of environmental change.
