Drought and Floods — The Climate Exodus

In regions plagued by climate change-induced droughts and floods, communities face the harsh reality of displacement, a phenomenon known as the "climate exodus." As droughts deplete water resources, parch the land, and jeopardize agriculture, people are forced to abandon their ancestral homes in search of sustenance elsewhere. Conversely, devastating floods inundate settlements, leaving residents homeless and vulnerable. These climate-related disasters exacerbate poverty, inequality, and social unrest, compelling people to embark on perilous journeys in search of a haven where they can rebuild their lives, often leading to the erosion of cultural heritage and traditional livelihoods.
