Climate Change, Human Mobility and Conflicts: The Role of Local Knowledge for Policy-Making. A case study in Moyale-Moyale

The study “Climate Change, Mobility and Conflict Nexus: The Role of Local Knowledge and Practices for Policy-Making”, made in collaboration with the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), delves into the intricate interplay between climate change, human mobility, and conflict dynamics in the Moyale-Moyale Borderlands, a region spanning northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia. Through extensive engagement with local communities and governmental bodies, the research explores various dimensions of this nexus. It investigates the evolution of conflicts, from traditional practices to contemporary dynamics, and assesses policies and practices aimed at conflict mitigation in the face of climate change and human mobility challenges. Additionally, the study delves into the roles of indigenous knowledge, gender dynamics, and land use policies, aiming to inform decision-making and interventions to foster resilience and peacebuilding in pastoralist communities.

Gender and Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change: Insights from the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States

The study “Gender and Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change: Insights from the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States” provides an overview of the gender-related challenges and opportunities in the context of Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change in the Easter Caribbean. It illustrates stories with a diverse view on gender in the above-named relation. The study also suggests recommendations on how to better integrate gender dimensions into Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change-related work including suggestions on how to include gender in national regional and international policy advice.

Financing Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change: Insights from the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States

The study “Financing Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change: Insights from the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States” analyses options, modes, and instruments of financing HMCCC related projects in the Eastern Caribbean including public and private sector, donors, development partner and banks. Based on this analysis, concrete recommendations on funding options for HMCCC projects including outreach strategy, conditions of application, eligibility, and timeline have been developed.

Apprendre à vivre avec le changement climatique

« 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.

Mit dem Klimawandel leben lernen

“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.

Regional Talanoa on Climate Induced Planned Relocation

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.

Training of Trainers Manual ‘Building capacity of border officials to address disaster displacement’ Edition no. 1

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.

E-learning course on human mobility in the context of climate change

A new, freely available self-paced e-learning course, jointly developed by UNU-EHS, UNU-VIE and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, will provide learners with a profound understanding of human mobility in the context of climate change.
By introducing key concepts like climate related migration, disaster displacement, planned relocation and trapped populations, this training will build capacities needed to consider human mobility in the context of climate change (HMCCC) in your respective field of work. The training showcases diverse examples from different countries on the phenomena of HMCCC as well as options how to manage it.

Dimensions of Gender and Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change (HMCCC)

„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.

Learning to live with Climate Change

„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.
