MigSoKo – Human migration and global environmental change: A vicious cycle?

Who we are

We are a junior research group co-funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) funding priority Social-Ecological Research (SÖF) and Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) aiming to understand the causalities between environmental change and human migration on the tropics. We are based at the Computational Landscape Ecology (CLE) Department at the UFZ Leipzig, in Germany.
