CDKN has released a set of country and regional snapshots featuring highlights of projects and achievements from Asia over the last quarter. In Bangladesh, a team of local and international academics have quantified the extent and spatial distribution of climate-induced migration following a request from the Government for more evidence on the reality of this practice. They are have also made recommendations for how seasonal migration can be better regulated and supported, such as setting up migration processing centres in climate vulnerable regions. The findings of this project – already published in a range of documents – have received great interest from within Bangladesh and beyond.
