"Münchner Klimaherbst 2017": Climate change and migration

When livelihoods are lost – What will the world, Germany and Munich have to deal with?

Global warming is changing the face of our earth. Sometimes to the better, but often to the worse. Especially poor people living in countries of the Global South are disproportionally threatened by environmental changes. Strong storms destroy their livelihoods, droughts damage crops and therefore reduce harvests, changing weather patterns have taken their toll on the agricultural sector. Therefore, the United Nations assume that this century will see massive migration movements.What does the global situation look like, what are we to expect?
