Under A Changing Sky – The Effects of Climate Change on South Asia

IOM Bangladesh Country Office

The impact of climate change and environmental degradation has been felt in South Asia for decades. Characterized by floods, storm surges, droughts, cyclones and heavy precipitation. These disasters took a huge toll on the region displacing thousands of people every year. The impact of these natural hazards is amplified by the fact that most countries in the region lacks strong economies and infrastructure to deal with disasters adequately. As natural disasters increased in severity and frequency it is clear that environmental challenges will have a significant impact on migratory flows in the future. Bangladesh, Nepal and the Maldives are exposed to a different range of climate induced hazards but all three countries experienced extreme variations in temperature and rainfall each year. Bangladesh is recognized as one of the most outreached countries in the world with some estimates that over nine million people excluding temporary and seasonal migrants will migrate within the country due to climatic factors between 2011 and 2050. Nearly 6 million have people already been displaced due to climatic effect in Bangladesh.

To address these challenges IOM has been building evidence based on the nexus of migration, environment and climate change in South Asia. IOM aims to build the resilience of communities to ensure that forced migration due to climatic factors is minimized; that assistance and durable solutions are provided to those forcibly displaced and finally that migration is integrated in to climate change and disaster policy framework as an adaptation strategy for the years to come.
