What is the Link Between Climate Change and Migration in Latin America?

Today’s episode was recorded live in front of a virtual audience and produced in partnership with CGIAR, the world’s largest agricultural innovation network. It is part of a series of episodes examining the relationship between climate variability and security.

In today’s episode, I moderate a panel discussion in which experts discuss the relationship between climate variability, migration and security in Latin America.

The episode kicks off with introductory remarks by Bram Govaerts, Director General, International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center.  I then ask some questions of our panelists before turning to questions from the audience.

Panelists:

Javier Aliaga Lordemann  is Senior Climate Change Specialist for The Latin American and Caribbean Network of Fair-Trade Small Producers and Workers (CLAC)

Deissy Martinez-Baron is Regional Program Leader for CCAFS in Latin America, CGIAR
