Résumé
The paper wants to analyse how climate factors influence migratory decisions. The hypothesis is that climate factors increase human vulnerability and enhance pre-existing stressors. This, in turn, can lead to migration. An "Index of Vulnerability" is developped using a multidisciplinary approach to the topic. This index aims at making the link between human vulnerability and climate change visible and measurable using 10 indicators. The index is applied to the examples of Syria and Australia.
