With help of case studies, it discusses wide-ranging themes like environment, migration, and population displacement; climate change induced migration in Afghanistan; new migration crisis in Bangladesh; climate change and refugees in Bhutan; gendered perspective of displacement in India; deforestation, riverbank erosion and migration in India; internally displaced persons (IDPs) of the Maldives; migration, mitigation and legal framework in Myanmar; climate change and human mobility in Nepal; Pakistan’s climate migrants; and vulnerability and resilience of Sri Lankan migrants. Part of Migrations in South Asia series, this topical book will be an essential read for scholars and researchers of migration studies, diaspora studies, refugee studies, climate change and environment studies, sustainable development studies, public policy, and development studies.
