Crop shortages associated with climate change could become a major factor in international migration in the coming decades. The EU-funded ClimateMigration2050 project aims to integrate state-of-the-art climate, crop, economic and migration models in order to predict migration flows from African and Middle Eastern countries into EU member states until 2050. The project's results will provide information to EU policymakers, enabling the optimisation of the future large-scale migration driven by climate change. The institutions involved with this interdisciplinary project will ensure the highest-quality research and training as well as the effective communication of results to EU policymakers and the public.
