“How can climate change induce economic migration?”

When the topic of climate migration is brought up, the focus is usually on how certain areas are becoming less inhabitable due to an increased frequency of disasters. However, this isn’t always the case. Climate change can wreak economic opportunities in an area, such as the die-off of a fish population in an area that depends on fishing.
