The contributors present empirical and theoretical insights on current debates on environmental change, adaptation and migration. While focusing on countries subject to environmental degradation, it calls for a regional perspective that recognises local actors and a systematic link between development studies and migration research.

"This book contributes to the literature about environmental change by framing migration as an important and relevant climate change adaptation strategy. ... This book also highlights positive aspects of climate change and environmental change induced migration. ... This book takes a special place in the literature: unlike other books dedicated to the environment-migration nexus, it is not only about post-disaster mobility, but allows for a more sophisticated and diversified definition of climate change impacts on population dynamics." (Karin Ingold, TESG - Tijdschrift voor Economische en Sociale Geografie, July, 2017)
"The presentation allows learning relatively easy the basic techniques of modeling by those coming to the subject for the first time. This effect is achieved by keeping notations as elementary as possible. It is addressed to interdisciplinary graduate/undergraduate students and to interdisciplinary young researchers. Some chapters are available to Bachelor students who have passed introductory courses in algebra, calculus, and probability." (Tadeusz Aleksander Radzik and Krzysztof Jozef Szajowski, Mathematica Applicanda, Vol. 45 (2), 2017)
