As the world seeks to develop a response to climate change through mitigation of the drivers of that change and adaptation to its impacts, migration will be important in the latter.

The issue of migration as adaptation versus displacement is dependent on a timing factor. Migrating prior to a change in environmental condition that will make it impossible to remain in a place could be considered adaptation, whereas migrating when all viable options have been used up and it is not possible to remain in a place, is displacement. 9 Figure 3 shows a model of an initial response to perceptions of oncoming food shortages, which may be temporary migration or reallocation of some of the family’s labour resources to areas outside of the region affected.
