Subhadip Mondal, Gulnaz Hussain, Shivani Shaw and Lopamudra GangulyAbstract:
Background: Historically, nomads and pastoralists seeking water and food for their cattle were frequently associated with the concept of water migration. Whereas the largest refugee flows since the Second World War is currently occurring because of water scarcity. One of the most critical worldwide concerns nowadays is water-related issues and their associated migration.
Methodology: The research is supported by secondary materials that are found in reputable journals and web pages.
Results: Due to the ongoing climate change brought on by environmental migration factors such as water contamination or land degradation, millions of people are now facing various water emergencies. Ten percent of the increase in global migration is attributed to water shortages. Global water stress is already at extremely high levels in 17 countries, which are home to 25% of the world's population. Climate change is hastening this issue. Migration is more affected by a lack of water than by an abundance of it.
Conclusion: Around 2040, the threat to humanity from increased water risk will be at its highest. The crisis could turn violent, triggering both forced and voluntary migration. In deduction, the study focuses on pertinent socio-economic and migratory issues while also examining well-known cases of water degradation.DOI: 10.33545/27068919.2022.v4.i4c.883Pages: 145-146 | Views: 164 | Downloads: 33Download Full Article: Click Here
