Climate Migration Projects and Workshops
ASAP is Advancing Climate Migration Practice and Research
ASAP is here to support adaptation professionals' thinking about how climate migration impacts their work. As communities, ecosystems, and economies are pummelled by worsening climate disasters, the world is opening its eyes to an unavoidable consequence: human migration. But migration isn't just a consequence of climate change. Migration is also a strategy for adapting to climate impacts; planning in advance for changing demographic conditions is too.
ASAP projects rely on the connection and collaboration amongst a robust group of adaptation professionals, applied researchers, and end-users across sectors and regions. Our current network of project participants includes demographers, climatologists, local, state, and tribal government staff, and industry representatives.
