The conference will take place from July 22nd to 25th at the University of Ghana, Legon.

Theme: “Climate Change, Migration and Security in Africa”

Studies have shown that a range of demographic, social, political economic and environmental factors contribute to migration. However emerging findings suggest strong linkages between climate change and increased internal and cross-border human movement.
