Abstract

With the scale of climate-induced migration gradually increasing, livelihood problems for climate migrants are becoming increasingly severe, which is mainly the consequence of human capital loss during the process of climate-induced migration. The accumulation of human capital impacts job opportunities, migration destination, cross-generation development and other aspects of climate migrants’ life through intellect and skills, physical and psychological health, hence significantly affects the sustainability of their livelihood. In order to restore the sustainable livelihood of climate migrants, efforts, including improved school education, enhanced vocational training, learning by working, enlarged investment in healthcare, perfected social security system, etc., have to be taken into consideration to restore human capital for climate migrants.
