  4. 4. Vulnerabilities in a Wetter World : A study on migration as an adaptation strategy to climate change, with under-five mortality as an intermediating variable.

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

    Författare :Wanja Kaufmann; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Climate change; precipitation; under-five-mortality; migration; panel data; climate refugees; vulnerabilities; climate change adaptation;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis strives to examine firstly if migration is a significant adaptation strategy to the experience of abundant precipitation, and secondly whether under-five mortality works attenuating or enhancing when being an intermediating factor. With cross-country panel data for precipitation and migration percentage for 169 countries over the world for the time period 1950-2005, a fixed effect model has been created for both parts of the analysis — in the first one to estimate the effects of abundant precipitation on migration flows, and in the second one to examine if and how the mortality rates of children under the age of five works as driver on the effect between abundant precipitation and migration.
