The natural disasters that are occurring today or that will occur in the future as a result of climate change will lead to collective mass migration. With global warming and the climate change it generates, events such as droughts, storms, floods, air and water pollution, and an increase in sea levels, will regularly occur. The natural disasters to emerge due to climate change will precipitate large-scale population movements. The concept of climate refugees was developed on the basis of these ecological problems. Based on the change in needs of individuals and societies, the field of social policy has been extended to include the issues experienced due to climate change. This study aims to address the legal status of climate refugees who migrate due to climate change and the problems caused by climate changes.
