Health of Displaced People in the Context of Climate Change & Restrictive Migration Policies
Restrictive policies & climate change are key determinants of health for migrants from Central American.
The confluence of environmental degradation in the Northern Triangle of Central America & eroding migrant protection increases already high risks to migrants' safety & health at every stage of their migration process. This project examines how environmental changes in the region impact migration & health patterns to inform humanitarian responses & migration policies.
