Amid the immense controversy over the migration issue in the US, environmentalists at the Norvergence conducted research according to which “Climate change is one of the reasons behind the increasing number of migrants in the United States or along its borders.
When Norvergence digs the matter deeper, it found that farmers in rural Honduras and Guatemala are living on the edge of hunger.
And they have two choices: Pray for rain or migrate to the United States of America.
Not the only the US, according to the World Bank Group,
By 2050, Central America and Mexico could see as many as 3.9 million climate migrants.
Following are the major reasons for migration apart from drought (climate change): unemployment, violence, and poverty.
When the Norvergence team related the matter with the data of previous years, it noticed that last year due to climate change the Honduran people faced a major drought that leads to the food shortage.
As global warming increases, the situation will get worse. Many international agencies are helping the 2 million people living across the drought-prone region. Norvergence appeals to all its readers in Central America to adopt a sustainable lifestyle.
