HWISE-RCN Workshop at the University of Miami

In early March, just before the coronavirus lockdown, 18 scholars met at the University of Miami for a two-day workshop titled Connecting the Dots between Climate Change, Water Insecurity, and Migration. The workshop explored the pathways by which household water insecurity—exacerbated by climate change and governance shortfalls—shapes migration decision-making. Participants represented 14 institutions from three nations and breadth of methodological backgrounds. The group hopes to leverage their methodological diversity toward future grant proposals aiming to study climate-water-migration linkages. The initial workshop outcomes include an in-progress review paper about water insecurity and environmental migration, and (eventually, when travel restrictions subside) a potential new wave of qualitative data collection about household-level relationships water and migration.
