There are several instances around the world where people have been forced to migrate due to numerous issues, inclusive of the political circumstances, terrorism, famines. One of the key issue which happens to be missing out from this bracket is the migration induced by the climate. If all the aforementioned earlier can cause force migrations, then it is possible that climate change can also induce forced migration. This paper will discuss the problems faced by the climate refugees in the current world, as this paper will showcase the manner in which the climate refugees have often been neglected from the focal point. It is observed that the Global North had often neglected to take the climate refugees as a part of their refugee system and its laws, this had left a massive void for these refugees, who had come seeking refuge under extraneous circumstances, which they had been facing and led to their migration from their homes domestically/internationally. Climate Refugees and their problems have often been deemed to be under an ambiguous conception, due to misunderstandings by several researchers. Therefore, the paper will shed light on the ambiguous concepts elaborate on the International Treaties and their take on the climate refugees. The paper highlights the vital need for recognition of people displaced by environmental crises and the inhumanity of ignoring them in the conventional refugee systems
