Climate Changes and Migrations


A study lead by prof. Pietro De Lellis applied dynamical systems theory to predict future migration fluxes in Bangladesh due to sea level rise. Bangladesh is especially susceptible to sea-level rise because it is a low-lying country crisscrossed with rivers, with an estimated 41 percent of its 163 million people living at elevations lower than 10 meters. According to the new model, the cascading effects of the migration in Bangladesh will ultimately affect 1.3 million people across the country by 2050. The work has implication for coastal populations worldwide, and has been published in Earth’s Future, premiere interdisciplinary journal of the American Geophysical Union, that covered the publication of the manuscript with a press release, available at
The study was also covered by Italian news portal “La Repubblica”
In what follows, the link to the research paper, and to the press release of the University of Naples Federico II:
The research is the result of a collaborative effort together with professors Maurizio Porfiri, New York University, and Manuel Ruiz Marin, Universidad Politecnica de Cartagena, within project ACROSS, directed by prof. De Lellis and funded by Fondazione San Paolo and COINOR.
