Var. envi :- During the last decades in Europe, environmental migration was the most evident and visible in the Balkans. An important reason for this was the war-induced environmental degradation in the West-Balkans. Besides the tens of thousands who moved away from the land-mined and chemically polluted regions, however, floods and industrial pollution has also caused serious environmental damage and forced a significant proportion of inhabitants to temporarily or permanently leave their homes. p.48
