„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.

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.
This national report on the application of the e3.ge model in Georgia outlines the CRED approach of modelling economy-wide impacts of climate change and adaptation. It a general understanding of macroeconomic models, and the impacts of climate change in Georgia. The report integrates both the economic and climatic dimensions in the e3.ge model and conducts exemplary analyses of adaptation options in the agriculture and tourism/infrastructure sectors.
This national report on the application of the e3.kz approach in Kazakhstan outlines the CRED approach of modelling economy-wide impacts of climate change and adaptation. It informs about macroeconomic modelling and climate change impacts in Kazakhstan and combines both dimensions in the e3.kz model. The report also conducts exemplary analyses of adaptation options in the agriculture, energy, and infrastructure sectors.
Agroecology is widely discussed in international development cooperation. The selected resources give an overview of the conceptual and political framework as well as knowledge sharing platforms on agoreocology, its implementation and latest discussions on cross-cutting issues.
Des approches systémiques telles que l'agroécologie sont nécessaires pour une transformation durable des systèmes alimentaires et une amélioration de la sécurité alimentaire, tout en favorisant l'adaptation au changement climatique. Cette note s'appuie sur des évaluations participatives des pratiques agroécologiques de la gestion durable des terres dans 7 pays. Elle montre comment ces pratiques peuvent contribuer à des stratégies d'adaptation efficaces et fournit des recommandations sur l'intégration des aspects d'adaptation dans les interventions concernant la santé des sols.
Systemic approaches such as agroecology are needed to sustainably transform food systems and improve food security while fostering adaptation to climate change. This brief draws from participatory assessments of agroecological practices for soil protection and rehabilitation in 7 countries. It demonstrates how such practices can contribute to effective adaptation strategies and provides recommendations on integrating adaptation concerns into soil health interventions.
Les technologies pour la gestion durable des terres (GDT) ont souvent plusieurs avantages, notamment pour l’atténuation et pour l’adaptation au changement climatique. De plus, elles soutiennent les objectifs des producteurs et productrices en matière d'augmentation et de sécurisation des rendements. Ce guide et l'outil Excel présentent une méthode participative pour identifier les risques climatiques pertinents et pour évaluer dans quelle mesure les technologies GDT répondent à ces risques, ainsi que leur faisabilité au niveau local.
Tackling gender inequality and disparities is crucial to build resilient communities and economies. This Gender Strategy outlines the steps the GIZ’s project on Private Adaptation Finance (PAF) - part of the global project NDC Assist II - undertakes to mainstream gender when mobilizing mobilizing finance and investment in private sector solutions for climate change adaptation and resilience.
Este documento de orientación ofrece una visión general de las consideraciones y el proceso de integración de las cuestiones de justicia en el monitoreo y la evaluación (M&E) de las intervenciones de adaptación basada en los ecosistemas (AbE). Está dirigido principalmente a los profesionales y planificadores que diseñan e implementan la AbE sobre el terreno, ofreciéndoles orientación sobre cómo integrar los aspectos de justicia en la M&E y especialmente en los indicadores. También está disponible en inglés una introducción en línea a la herramienta de monitoreo y evaluación de la justicia climática.

Ofrece orientación sobre marcos estratégicos, formulación de objetivos y medidas de proyectos y anclaje de la justicia en la estructura institucional y financiera. También explica los pasos clave para implicar a las partes interesadas en el establecimiento del sistema de gestión y evaluación. También está disponible una introducción en línea a la herramienta de planificación de la justicia climática.
El caso de Honduras / La Mosquitia ilustra la importancia de integrar las cuestiones de justicia en el proyecto durante las primeras fases de planificación. Es especialmente importante integrar estas cuestiones en las estructuras y procesos de gobernanza en la zona del proyecto, aunque la gestión del proyecto también debe tenerlas en cuenta. Los puntos de entrada para anclar estratégicamente las cuestiones de justicia incluyen el concepto del proyecto, la estructura de dirección, el sistema de seguimiento y evaluación (S&E) y el concepto de personal. Integrar las distintas dimensiones de la justicia (justicia de reconocimiento, justicia procesal y justicia distributiva) a través de estos puntos de entrada es un requisito previo clave para que la justicia se tenga en cuenta en la ejecución del proyecto.
El caso de Vietnam / Soc Trang ilustra la importancia de la justicia climática como condición previa para proteger con éxito y de forma sostenible los manglares. Los manglares protegen la costa y a la población de tormentas e inundaciones. Además, el ecosistema proporciona otros beneficios colaterales, como el aumento de los ingresos a través de la pesca, al proporcionar zonas de cría, alimento, refugio y hábitat para una amplia gama de especies acuáticas. El caso pone de relieve cómo un enfoque de aplicación basado en la justicia reforzó la participación igualitaria y los beneficios de un enfoque de cogestión, que promovió activamente diferentes dimensiones de la justicia climática.
