Regional Climate Mobility Initiatives

Anticipate + Plan + Enable + Connect

Africa Climate Mobility Initiative

The Africa Climate Mobility Initiative was initiated in September 2021 to set out a common agenda, informed by robust evidence, for addressing climate induced mobility across the African continent.

In November 2022 the Africa Climate Mobility Initiative released a comprehensive report, African Shifts, presenting a vision for people positive adaptation in Africa, along with a robust climate mobility model projecting migration flows – and potential hotspots – through to 2050.

The Agenda for Action sets out eight actions for the next eight years, to ensure that policy and finance decisions are based on anticipating and planning for climate mobility in national adaptation and climate-resilient development strategies. 

Greater Caribbean Climate Mobility Initiative

The Greater Caribbean Climate Mobility Initiative was launched in September 2022.

It 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 climate related events. 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. The evidence-based initiative is to undertake research and fieldwork, aiming to support the development of an agenda for action and mobility model, around which to forge regional political momentum, a common policy agenda and resource mobilisation, necessary for locally anchored solutions to address climate mobility.
