MEET THE WORLD’S FIRST CLIMATE REFUGEES
“This is a story about people who stand to lose everything—people who may need to flee their native home and never come back. These people are refugees, but they’re not running from war or an oppressive government. They’re seeking asylum from climate change,” the narrator of the Seeker Stories episode below explained.
Climate refugees are those displaced from their homes due to climate change-induced disasters such as flooding or drought, as well as slow-creeping crises such as sea level rise.
