    Abstract Populations around the world have already experienced the increasing severity of extreme weather causing disaster displacement. Anthropogenic climate change can intensify these impacts. Extreme event attribution studies center around the question of whether impactful extreme events could have occurred in a pre-industrial climate. Here, we argue that the next step for attribution science is to focus on those most vulnerable populations to future extremes and impacts from climate change. Up until now, the vulnerability dimension has not been systematically addressed in attribution studies, yet it would add urgently needed context, given the vast differences in adaptive capacity. We propose three integrative points to cascade disaster displacement linked to anthropogenic climate change.
