30 upcoming climate change years will cause migration crisis
The World Bank (WB) has warned that in the next 30 years there will be about 140 million people in three areas of developing countries that have to migrate due to climate change.

In particular, the World Bank's first report on the issue said the World Bank surveyed three regions that accounted for 55% of the population of developing countries. Over the next 30 years, 86 million people in sub-Saharan Africa, 40 million people in South Asia and 17 million people in Latin America are expected to migrate in the country.

This person can cause widespread disruption, threaten state management and economic and social development. Migration from one country to another by the risk of a conflict over the border has become a focus of attention recently. However, internal migration also causes considerable disruption, putting pressure on infrastructure, jobs, foods and water supplies.

Climate change will have the greatest impact on the poorest and most vulnerable countries, making agricultural production more difficult, threatening water resources and increasing the risk of floods, droughts and heat waves in some areas. Rising sea levels and rising storm surges are also likely to hit coastal areas like Bangladesh.

John Roome, the World Bank's senior director for climate change, pointed out three key actions governments should take. The first, speeding up greenhouse gas emissions reductions; Second, move the issue of climate change migration into the national development plan; Third, further investment in data and analysis for use in development planning.
