Abstract:     
This article analyzes the interaction between international human rights law and climate change law. Part II discusses climate induced migration, human rights law and refugee status. Part III considers the role of the United Nations Security Council in climate-induced insecurity. Part IV concludes that maintaining international peace and security requires timely codification of climate measures that address ecomigration.
