Snapshot #13

Climate change and displacement in the North of Central America and Mexico

There are figures on human displacements caused by sudden disasters of natural origin, mainly those whose destination, whether temporary or permanent, is within the same country, but it is less common to find figures for those displacements that cross one or more international borders. Information on displacement and migration caused by progressive and slow-onset disasters of natural origin, such as droughts or increased coastal erosion, is also scarce. However, the number of investigations and case studies on this problem has increased considerably, especially since 2008.
