As the effects of climate change wreak ever greater havoc on our communities, millions of Americans and their families living in the hardest-hit areas are finding little choice but to leave their homes and resettle elsewhere. While the scale and scope of such migrations is expected to increase, there has been little research and few policy proposals addressing this phenomenon. In Preparing Receiving Communities for Climate Migrations, Enterprise outlines steps policymakers at the federal, state and local level can take to help receiving communities address the impacts of climate migrations.
