The links between migration and climate change are complex; evidence shows that decisions to migrate are rarely mono-causal, but that climate extremes and environmental degradation often amplify other economic, social and political drivers of migration. Funding that supports adaptation and resilience to climate change therefore helps to reduce climate-related migration. Since 2011 we have directly supported over 88 million people in some of the world's most vulnerable countries to cope with the effects of climate change.
