As the effects of climate change increase in scope and severity, more people will relocate to preserve or enhance their lives and livelihoods. Jay Balagna (cohort '20) and Prof. Aaron Clark-Ginsberg review how six countries are managing climate mobility and provide options for policymakers considering the needs of climate migrants and their host communities.
Global Development Research
Implementing solutions for global socioeconomic development and poverty alleviation is a daunting challenge. Through the Pardee Initiative as well as RAND International, students and RAND researchers conduct extensive work in Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, and Latin America. They explore global human development efforts like youth unemployment, migration, the effects of climate change on developing countries, and improving governance.
