Migration Matters (2020)

Dr. Caroline Zickgraf

What can Senegal teach us about climate migration?

Does migration have to mean leaving your community and way of life behind you? Dr. Caroline Zickgraf shares an example from Senegal to show how some migrants have used migration to hold onto their livelihoods and allow them to maintain their ability to return back home. 

Look out for...

  • Countries that face multi-risk scenarios
  • How a fishing community endangered by climate change is using migration to hang on to their way of life 
  • How migration can also be used as a strategy to stay in a place, rather than leave it permanently
