  • The first climate refugees? Contesting global narratives of climate change in Tuvalu

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This article explores the uncertain outcomes of climate change effects for different populations. It argues that understanding climate change requires broad conceptualisations that incorporate multiple voices and recognise the agency of vulnerable populations. In climate change discourse, climate mobility is often characterised as the production of ‘refugees’, with a tendency to discount long histories of ordinary mobility among affected populations. The paper shows that in Tuvalu migration as an everyday practice is paired together with climate refugee narratives.
