This roadmap was developed as part of the project “Developing Risk Management Approaches for Climate Risks in Ghana” that was implemented by GIZ and Allianz Re in cooperation with local partners in Ghana. The roadmap describes both the approach taken and the route followed by the project partners in applying the Integrated Disaster Risk Management concept in the context of managing flood risk of public infrastructure assets owned or managed by the three municipalities of Accra.
The impacts of climate-related disaster risks are growing and disproportionately affect vulnerable countries. Finance that is available in a timely fashion after a disaster is crucial in order to increase financial resilience. The purpose of this disaster risk toolkit is to provide practical guidance on how to decide which disaster risk finance instruments are suitable for which circumstances.
« Mon village est repris par la mer. » – La voix de Kaboua John tremble lorsqu’il raconte l’histoire de son île natale, Kiribati, un petit État du Pacifique, lors de la Conférence sur le climat de Bonn en 2017. Kiribati n’est pas un cas isolé: Le changement climatique menace de plus en plus les moyens de subsistance des populations du monde entier. En conséquence, les gens quittent leur domicile. Au cours des six dernières années, le programme « Mobilité humaine dans le contexte du changement climatique » a relevé ces défis dans des régions comme les îles du Pacifique, les Caraïbes, l'Afrique de l'Est et les Philippines. Apprenez-en davantage sur leurs histoires et sur la manière dont le programme a collaboré avec plusieurs partenaires pour lutter contre la migration induite par le climat.
"Mein Dorf versinkt im Meer." - Kaboua Johns Stimme zittert, als er auf der Bonner Klimakonferenz 2017 die Geschichte seiner Heimatinsel Kiribati, einem kleinen Pazifikstaat, erzählt. Kiribati ist kein Einzelfall - vielmehr bedroht der Klimawandel zunehmend die Lebensgrundlagen der Menschen weltweit. Infolgedessen verlassen die Menschen ihre Heimat. In den vergangenen sechs Jahren hat das Global Vorhaben "Menschliche Mobilität im Kontext des Klimawandels" diese Herausforderungen in Regionen wie den Pazifischen Inseln, der Karibik, Ostafrika und auf den Philippinen angegangen. Lesen Sie mehr über ihre Geschichten und darüber, wie das Vorhaben mit verschiedenen Partnern zusammengearbeitet hat, um die klimabedingte Migration zu adressieren.
The factsheet illustrates the intersection of agroecology and rural employment. It explores how agroecology fosters climate change adaptation through biodiversity alongside employment promotion. Three dimensions are examined in particular: job creation, sustainable business opportunities and education.
On behalf of the German Government, GIZ works with strategically important partners for urban resilience, such as Resilient Cities Network, ICLEI, Cities Alliance, and C40 to support projects on urban climate resilience in partner countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. GIZ’s approaches range from identification of concrete urban climate risks, applying vulnerability and risk assessment tools, to the support of cities & communities in planning, developing & implementing the climate adaptation actions.
As part of the closing and climax of a very successful technical cooperation with the Pacific Islands, particularly in Fiji, a series of talanoas was convened. The talanoas bring people together to discuss all issues affecting the community. The talanoas, open and interactive conversations, took place in a hybrid format and discussed Climate risk assessments in the context of planned relocation, The Standard Operating Procedures for Planned (SOP) Relocation in Fiji, and Relocation, culture, gender, and psychosocial wellbeing nexus in the context of the relocations in Fiji.
This trainers manual is intended to support border officials in building capacities to address disaster displacement. It is organised into three parts. The first chapter provides general guidance on planning and logistics for training sessions. The second chapter gives an overview on adult teaching strategies. And the last chapter dives deeper into topics like regional displacement frameworks, cross-border displacement in the Caribbean, addressing the factor of mental health and psychological first aid as well as outlining different flows and international protection.
„Gender influences who moves (or stays), how decisions are made, an individual’s circumstances in transit, and the outcomes of movement“ (Sierra Club & UN Women, 2018, p. 2). This quote shows that the nexus between climate change and human mobility is inherently gendered. Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change differs based on intersections of gender, socio-economic status, sexual orientation and gender identity, geographical location and ethnicity. Read more about examples from the Global Programme’s partners from the Philippines, the Caribbean, the Pacific and East Africa.
„My village is being taken back by the sea.” – Kaboua John’s voice trembles as he tells the story of his home island Kiribati, a small Pacific state, at the 2017 Bonn Climate Conference. Kiribati is not an isolated case – rather, climate change is increasingly threatening livelihoods of people worldwide. As a result, people leave their homes. Over the past 6 years, the Global Programme “Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change” has been tackling these challenges in regions like the Pacific Islands, the Caribbean, East Africa and in the Philippines. Read more about their stories and how the programme has collaborated with multiple partners to address climate-induced migration.
In East Africa, periods of droughts are becoming more frequent and last longer, rainfall patterns are losing their predictability, leading to higher probabilities of floods in certain areas. This significantly affects how, when, and why people move. To address the consequent challenges, the Global Programme “Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change” supports one of Africa’s Regional Economic Communities, namely IGAD (Intergovernmental Authority on Development), to produce measures tailored to the region in order to help people adapt to a changing climate. Learn more about past achievements and ongoing activities in this factsheet.
Addressing the impacts of climate change on human mobility, the Global Programme "Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change" (HMCCC) responds to related challenges in the Eastern Caribbean. Experiences from hurricanes driving displacement and policy redesign highlight the accomplishments and strategies that enhance the region's resilience. Learn more about how HMCCC provides knowledge products, technical support, and capacity-building to increase the region’s ability in managing mobility in a changing climate.
The Standard Operating Procedures for Planned Relocation (SOP) in Fiji is one of the most comprehensive national documents in the world, providing detailed instructions and guidance on processes for climate-induced planned relocation. The SOP paves the way for a human-centered, science-based, and climate resilient development approach for the relocation of at-risk communities in Fiji.
In the Pacific Islands, communities are already being displaced or relocated as a result of direct climate change impacts. Hence, regional and national adaptation measures are developed and deeply entrenched and implemented in national law and regional frameworks. Learn more about these measures and how the Global Programme “Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change” supported the Pacific Islands (particularly Fiji) in this regard.
Rising sea levels, more frequent droughts, more intense flooding: As climate change continues to impact livelihoods, people often decide to leave their homes or are displaced. This is the starting point for the Global Programme “Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change”. Learn more about its goals, partner regions and achievements in this factsheet.
Climate change has far-reaching consequences for rural development. If you want to better understand this nexus, have a look at this living document. It provides you with many relevant publications and websites for the nexus of climate change and rural development, including basic concepts, reference documents of the UNFCCC and relevant tools and data bases.
This qualitative study highlights the interactions between climate change, human mobility and pastoralists' livelihoods in the border regions of Uganda and Kenya. It provides nuanced perspectives and recommendations on adaptive strategies and the role of both governmental and non-governmental actors in fostering resilience amidst these climatic shifts.
L'absence de l’évidence scientifique des avantages économiques et des effets environnementaux positifs de l'agroécologie est un problème majeur qui empêche sa mise en œuvre à grande échelle. Cette publication vise à fournir des orientations méthodologiques afin de permettre une meilleure prise de décision fondée sur des données solides. Elle s'adresse à la fois aux responsables de la mise en œuvre des projets et aux chercheurs dans le processus de préparation et de choix d'analyses scientifiques (socio-économiques et environnementales) adaptées au contexte et liés à l'agroécologie.
Missing scientific evidence for positive economic benefits and environmental effects of agroecology is a major problem hindering its large-scale implementation. To allow for better evidence-based decision making, this publication provides the methodological guidance. It addresses both project implementers and researchers who are in the process of preparing and choosing context-adapted socio-economic analyses and ecosystem services valuations related to agroecology. In this way, it is intended to support future economic studies conducted within agricultural and rural development programmes.
