"Internal climate migration could affect countries' development futures."

The report “Groundswell: Acting on Internal Climate Migration” projects that climate change could drive 216 million people to migrate within their own countries by 2050. Hotspots of internal migration could emerge as soon as 2030, spreading and intensifying thereafter. Immediate and concerted action to reduce global emissions and efforts to support green, inclusive, and resilient development could however reduce the scale of climate migration by as much as 80%.
