Aftershock: An assessment of how climate change is influencing migration and vulnerability in Libya (November 2023)
Snapshot DateNov 30 2023
This study is based on data collected through interviews with 3,418 migrants held in September and October 2023 in Libya. It shows how climate change acts as a threat multiplier, exacerbating the vulnerabilities of migrants in their countries of origin and in Libya. The data suggests that climate-related events are indirect migration drivers through their negative impact on local economies and workers, particularly those reliant on agriculture. A quarter of migrants interviewed had experienced at least one climatic shock or stressor in the year prior to migrating to Libya.
