CliMig is the output of a professional data gathering path in 4 stages:

Literature monitoring

Using the most advanced bibliographic research technologies, new publications are identified

SELECTION

The selection of topics to be included is determined

TYPES

The selection of relevant types of literature to be included is decided

KEYWORDS

Specific keywords are implemented

ABOUT

Compiled at the Institute of Geography at the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland), the CliMig bibliographic database is the first comprehensive collection of resources specifically concentrating on migration, the environment and climate change. The project consists of a fully searchable version of the bibliography on the web that is continuously updated with new publications.

 

The aim is to provide a free major hub for researchers on this important topic worldwide.

QUOTES

CLIMIG KEYWORDS

The Climig database project assigns its own keywords on the basis of a uniform “manmade” procedure for each publication.

AREA

  • Area identifies the geographic areas of the studies on the basis of UN definitions.
  • Search for papers related to an entire continent, a specific country or to particular regions or cities.

TYPE

Type identifies the kind of case study and its methodology.

  • Overview – for synthesis on the topic.
  • Law – relates to papers dealing with legal issues and/or policies.
  • Empirical studies – CliMig has 6 keyword types:

Type1: Ecological models based on area characteristics (spatial analysis)

Type2: Multilevel analysis based on area and individual characteristics

Type3: Analysis of individual data based on large sample surveys (>100)

Type4: Historical analogues

Type5: Indexes of vulnerability, hotspots identification, scenarios, regional case studies, etc

Type6: Qualitative field case studies using ethnographic methods and small sample questionnaires

ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD

Identifies the types of environmental perturbation studied

  • Flood – Flood, flooding, flash flood, rainfall variability,…
  • Hurricane – Hurricane, typhoon, cyclone, storm,…
  • SLR – Sea level rise, SLR, coastal erosion,…
  • Drought – Drought, desertification, heat waves, dry, rainfall variability, land degradation,…

FOCUS

Relates to the specific approach of a paper, which may focus on:

  • DRR / EWS: disaster risk reduction / early-warning system in environmental migration
  • Gender: studies dealing environmental migration with a special focus on gender issues
  • Migadapt: migration as an adaptation response, as a strategy to cope with environmental degradations
  • Perception: representations and perceptions of actors on climate change
  • Statelessness: climate change induced statelessness
  • Trapped: studies dealing with immobility and trapped populations

HOW TO SEARCH

Search the climate change and migration database with or without the CliMig keywords

  • DETERMINE AREA

    Continents, countries, regions or even cities are designated in the keywords field.

  • TYPE

    "overview", "law" or an empirical study between "type 1"-"type 6".

  • ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD

    Flood, Hurricane, SLR, Drought

  • FOCUS

    DRR/EWS, Gender, Migadapt, Perception, Statelessness, Trapped
