By the end of this century, people across the globe will be forced to involuntarily leave their home due to climate change. Rising sea levels, wildfires, drought or hurricanes can all pose serious threat to human life just as any conventional weapon of war.
But unlike victims of war for whom the causes and effects of the threats are clear and codified, there are limited protections for migrants. Impacts of climate change vary widely: it includes destroyed crops and livestock, exacerbated food insecurity and destroyed
natural resources such as drinking water. As a result of these severe impacts, researchers estimate that approximately 200 million people will migrate by the year 2050.
