Abstract This research paper delves into the critical importance of how miserable climate change has made the life of the people who are continuously migrating from the place of their livelihood. Despite the increasing climate change, there isn’t a framework for international agreement or a plan to address the anticipated sharp rise in migration. Climate change is a major driver of migration, forcing people to leave their homes in search of better livelihoods and safety. Migrants who are displaced by climate change are at increased risk of human rights violations throughout the migration process, including before, during, and after migration. This study looks at the requirements for migration inclusion and the obstacles to a protective framework for climate migrants. It makes the case that the existing international legal frameworks pertaining to human rights and refugees are insufficient to meet the demands of climate migrants. The paper advocates for the creation of a new international legal framework that guarantees the involvement of climate migrants in efforts for climate change adaptation and mitigation, as well as their specific protection. This paper highlights the important but unexplored relationship between ongoing pressures between the migrants and the climate change. It posits that the rise in climate change puts pressure on the migrants to move from one place to another. This uncertainty challenges of climate change achieve effective and equitable change in the lives of the migrants. To aid protection for the people who are displaced or induced to migrate by the impacts of climate change, however the priority cannot remain entirely on barriers. Climate change is a chance for local leaders and the world community to plan for its effects, meet their human rights obligations, and help those who are already being hurt by it and those who will be in the future.
