Inside Bangladesh's Climate Migration



Bangladesh, a country that is extremely vulnerable to rising sea levels, is experiencing migration from communities of people forced to leave their coastal homelands for the bustling city slums of Dhaka and Chittagong.

The Environmental Justice Network estimates people living in slums will increase by more than 60% in the next 17 years across Bangladesh due to climate migration.

Bangladesh's growing climate refugee population falls under the lower-economic threshold and most of them are driven from their farmland under unbearable weather conditions.
