Human Rights of Migrants: Global Impact of Climate Change

Earth’s climate has changed throughout the history. The current warming trend is of particular significance because it has been increasing at an unprecedented rate which is most likely the result of human activity. Global temperature rise, warming oceans, shrinking ice sheets, glacial retreat, decreased snow cover, sea level rise, extreme events etc. has left people with no option but migration for better living. Disasters like cloud burst, floods or drought etc. have led people to migrate internally as well as externally. Migrants are people living and working outside their countries of origin and they’re most vulnerable to abuse of human rights. Some migrate for better job opportunities, some for better living or some to escape the war occurring on their land and some migrate due to change in climate conditions which make difficult situations for their survival. Climate change has impacted, directly and indirectly, guaranteed human rights. As defined by Vienna Convention, human rights are rights inherent to all, irrespective of nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion etc. Everyone is entitled for the human rights wherever they are. “But, due to certain, geographical and political changes, different kind of violations has arisen and human rights of migrants is one of the aspect it.” Although, a conclusive study on kinds of human rights violations is in consideration, but there are still few internationally guaranteed rights which have been affected due to climate change.
