Migration is a sometimes overlooked consequence of climate change. This migration is caused by natural disaster, warming and drought, rising sea levels and competition over natural resources. This migration will often be internal, but also external, across borders. “There are no international instruments that specially address international migration stemming from climate change or other environmental factors.” (Martin,2010) The issue migration illustrates that there is no governance structure in place to mitigate the consequences of climate change.
