Responding with ‘climate refugees’ in the Philippines
Written by Maya Sankaran
Climate-induced or environmental displacement as a global issue is anticipated only to intensify over time in tandem with climate change; practitioners and policymakers are developing responses and interventions. Social Work as a profession has taken on that challenge: to “create social responses to a changing environment” is one of the Grand Challenges of Social Work. In response to that call, this project seeks to examine local practices and traditionality-based models of intervention that address environmental displacement.
