Planning for the future – Using scenario planning to improve the understanding and management of climate-induced migration

This factsheet provides an overview of scenario planning as an approach to deal with migration, displacement and planned relocation in the context of climate change. Scenario planning is a method that involves a wide range of stakeholders and serves as a tool for developing a range of future scenarios based on multiple factors and influences.

The Global Programme Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH has successfully applied scenario planning methods with its partners in the Caribbean, Pacific and the Philippines. In this context, valuable insights and important options for action could be identified.

Home Lands: Island and Archipelagic States’ Policymaking for Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change (Executive Summary)

This report provides an overview of how human mobility in the context of climate change (HMCCC) fits into the policy landscape of nine island and archipelagic countries: Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, and St. Lucia in the Eastern Caribbean; Fiji, Kiribati, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu in the South Pacific; and the Philippines in the Western Pacific. All of these nations are heavily affected by climate impacts like sea level rise, ocean acidification, tropical cyclones and hydrological extremes.

Factsheet BMZ Global Programme on Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change

This factsheet provides insights into the different forms of human mobility – migration, displacement and planned relocation – and its multiple drivers that result in a person´s decision to migrate or stay in the face of extreme weather events and gradual changes in the environment. It presents how GIZ´s Global Programme “Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change” (GP HMCCC) improves applied knowledge on climate-induced migration and how it supports national and regional partners, non-governmental organisations and universities to discuss and deal with the resulting challenges in its project regions.

Overview of Fiji’s Response to International Frameworks on Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change

This document provides an overview of how Fiji, a Pacific Island country affected by climate change, has responded nationally to international and regional frameworks and guidelines on adaptation and human mobility in the context of climate change. It covers, inter alia, how Fiji developed its Planned Relocation Guidelines – A framework to undertake climate change related relocation, the first to ever be developed in the Pacific Islands.

Scoping Paper: Climate Change, Human Mobility and Climate Risk Insurance Tools

This scoping paper, produced by the BMZ-funded GIZ Global Programme on Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change in collaboration with the InsuResilience Global Partnership, deals with the relationship between climate change and human mobility and the potential role of climate risk insurance tools (CRI tools) as an influencing factor on human mobility.

GIZ Factsheet: Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change – Migration, Displacement and Planned Relocation in the Eastern Caribbean, the Pacific and the Philippines

This factsheet provides an introduction to the topic of HMCCC and gives an overview of relevant international policy frameworks. It looks at the partner regions and activities of the Global Programme on Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change (GP HMCCC), implemented by GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
