A Brief Study on African Climate Refugees: An Approach towards Environmental Injustice and Recognition


The purpose of the study is to look at the effects of climate change on the African continent, which has seen “environmental displacement” and “climate refugees” as a result of environmental and climatic change. Despite the fact that “climate refugees” have become visible in Africa, and despite Africa’s concrete efforts, the lack of international recognition of the term “climate refugee,” as well as a lack of environmental justice in distributing the burdens of global warming, remains an impediment to Africa’s ability to resolve this issue. As a result, international cooperation is crucial in order to identify common ground. The importance of the study rests in revealing the inadequacy of African attempts to eradicate the phenomena of environmental refugees, as well as the lack of international efforts to create a legislative framework to address the issue. The major goal of this study is to clarify the problematic notion of “Climate Refugee,” as well as to determine the negative impacts of environmental degradation on the African continent as a result of climate change, and to evaluate African attempts to counteract the situation.
