Climate induced displacement
The relocation within the homeland’s border or across its borders, as a response to climate change effects, including rising sea levels and increased frequency of extreme weather phenomena attributed to climate change, in pursuit of a safer natural environment. The responses to climate induced displacement are currently inadequate due to the inability of International Law to protect climate refugees.
