This report summarizes the presentations at the colloquium that has been structured around four themes and speakers:

  • Insights from population projections 2050 and beyond (Professor Wolfgang Lutz, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA))
  • Insights from climate change science on potential climate change impacts (Professor Johan Kleman, Bert Bolin Centre for Climate Research at Stockholm University)
  • Environmental migration – a contested concept (Madeleen Helmer, Red Cross Climate Center)
  • Historical examples of migration and adaptation (Professor Alf Hornborg, Human Ecology Division at Lund University)
