Climate change has become one of the major global problems, forcing hundreds of millions of people from their homes in the future.

According to foreign media reports, a few days ago,Climate change could force more than 200 million people to migrate within 30 years if global carbon emissions are not slowed, according to a new World Bank report.

The report examines how the effects of slow-moving climate change, such as water scarcity, falling crop yields and rising sea levels, will lead to millions of people becoming "climate migrants" by 2050, in the context of three different climate actions and levels of development.

In the worst-case scenario of high emissions and development imbalances, the report predicts thatIn the six regions analysed, as many as 216 million people were forced to leave their homes and travel elsewhere. These countries are Latin America, North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, South Asia, and East Asia and the Pacific.

Of these, sub-Saharan Africa will see as many as 86 million people move within national borders as desertification, fragile coastlines and people's dependence on agriculture become the most migrant areas.

In addition, North Africa is expected to have the largest proportion of climate migrants, with 19 million people moving, equivalent to 9 per cent of its population, mainly due to increased water scarcity in north-eastern Tunisia, north-western Algeria, western and southern Morocco and the foothills of central Atlas.

In South Asia, the formation of "climate migration" in Bangladesh is mainly affected by floods and crop failures, accounting for half of all "climate migration" in the country. Floods and crop failures will cause some 19.9 million people to become "climate migrants" by 2050.

In the most climate-friendly situation in the world,With reduced emissions and balanced global sustainable development, 44 million people around the world are still forced from their homes.

The report also warns that migrant hotspots could emerge within the next decade and intensify by 2050. At the same time, it will further increase the number of people affected by conflict and inequality.
