This paper presents empirical evidence on the links between climate change, migration and trafficking. It

then unpacks the underlying drivers that policymakers should target to deal with this nexus.

The paper explores the extent and impact of climate change on distress migration and human trafficking in two diverse areas affected by slow-onset and rapid-onset climatic events.
