In this paper we ask: why do people in rural agrarian communities facing increasing migration pressures from changing climatic conditions, stay? We aim to understand why people stay, who stays, what are the impacts of migration on those who stay, and what are their needs for adaptation?
Migration is the core theme at DGAP that explores migration flows, policies, and debates in Germany, Europe, and beyond. Through the umbrella of the migration theme, DGAP aims to connect the work of its Migration Program with the geographic and thematic expertise provided by all of its other research programs. This approach allows DGAP to create in-house synergies among its experts, and to offer interdisciplinary and regional expertise on migration, asylum, and refugee issues.
