Morbidity & Mortality Patterns of Migrants in a Warming World
What happens to human health when climate change pushes rural populations into rapidly-growing city-slums?
The emergence of climate hotspots has exacerbated existing health risks among already-vulnerable communities, forcing many people to migrate. The majority of people initially stay within their own country, often moving to rapidly-growing city slums where insecurities intensify & systemic health service gaps limit access to appropriate health assistance. To better understand this phenomenon, this project maps the causes and patterns of migrant morbidity & mortality in urban areas proximate to climate hotspots.
