In this episode of the Climate Change: America and the World podcast, we examine the interaction of climate change with migration. Through this lens, we explore America’s role in engaging with climate related forced movement in Latin America, and from Latin America to the US. Professor Sarah Bermeo (Duke University) and Professor Susana Beatriz Adamo (Columbia University) discuss the implications of climate change induced migration, including whether it is even possible to attribute this migration to climate change. This episode begins to uncover the deep-rooted, structural problems that need to be overcome to offer a robust solution to climate change migration, as well as the potential inadequacies of development aid to address climate change related issues in the developing world.
