Climate Change and Migration: Evidence from the Middle East and North Africa

16.11.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

Climate change is a major source of concern in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and migration is often understood as one of several strategies used by households to respond to changes in climate and environmental conditions, including extreme weather events.

Based in large part on data collected in 2011 in Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Syria, and the Republic of Yemen, this study focuses on the link between climate change and migration. It also explains how climate change also presents unique gender challenges. MENA migrants, whether internal or external, are overwhelmingly male, so that women are left to assume the burden of increased workload at the place of origin. And for those women who do migrate, job opportunities tend to be less attractive than those for their male counterparts.
