Climate Mobility Initiative
The Greater Caribbean Climate Mobility Initiative (GCCMI), officially launched in September 2022 to set out a common agenda, informed by robust evidence, for addressing climate mobility across the Greater Caribbean region.
About the GCCMI
The GCCMI is a joint undertaking coordinated by the Global Centre for Climate Mobility and the Association of Caribbean States, bringing together 25 countries, amongst them numerous Small Island Developing States, whose people are most at risk from the impacts of sea level rise and other climate related stressors. The initiative’s partners include the World Bank, the UN Development Programme, the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
In 2023, the Initiative will collect data on mobility decisions in climate vulnerable communities across the region and model future climate mobility trends up to 2050. This research will form the evidence-base for a consultation process with policy makers and stakeholders in the region to support the development of an agenda for action, around which to mobilise regional political momentum and resources for partnerships to advance locally anchored climate mobility solutions.
