We investigate the role of spatial effects in the analysis of the relationship between climate-related disasters and forced migration. As a case study we select South and South-East Asia, due to its large exposure to these hazards. The spatial regressions show that short to medium-distance forced migrations are considerably affected by climate-related disasters, independently of the economic expectation associated with the destination. Moreover, we find that this relationship is disaster-type specific. Finally, we detect a competition among migrants, as the decision to move as an adaptation strategy is found to be dependent on the migratory behaviour of neighbouring countries.

Abstract

We investigate the role of spatial effects in the analysis of the relationship between climate-related disasters and forced migration. As a case study we select South and South-East Asia, due to its large exposure to these hazards. The spatial regressions show that short to medium-distance forced migrations are considerably affected by climate-related disasters, independently of the economic expectation associated with the destination. Moreover, we find that this relationship is disaster-type specific. Finally, we detect a competition among migrants, as the decision to move as an adaptation strategy is found to be dependent on the migratory behaviour of neighbouring countries.
