“How can adaptation come in the form of migration?”

 

With the advent of climate change, certain regions of the world are going to become less habitable and certain regions will become more. This new imbalance will mean that people may have to migrate to a new area to be safer from climate change. One illustration of this can be found in Indigenous Alaskan village relocation, where villagers are moving their entire community to new land to escape sea-level rise. This is why Migration as Adaptation is a very useful concept.
