Large population displacements are now commonly presented as one of the most challenges of climate change. Recent forecasts and projections show areas that would be affected by such population movements are riverine, coastal and delta regions as well as low-lying islands. Climate change induced displacement brings about expanding urbanization that in turn weakens already vulnerable communities and people. This paper aimed to study climate change-induced displacement with emphasis on its drivers, challenges and mitigation measures.
