Africa climate mobility platform

Door: Clever Franke

“The impact of climate change is reshaping our world. Across Africa, climate change is already increasing forced migration and displacement, referred to as ‘climate mobility’.

The Global Center for Climate Mobility (GCCM) launched the Africa Climate Mobility Initiative as a research and policy project to address the future of mobility in Africa in the context of climate change. With the goal of raising awareness and shifting the narrative in global climate discussions, the initiative was launched during the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP27 in Egypt, where climate adaptation strategies were high on the agenda.

The collaboration between the GCCM researchers, editors, photographers, and policy experts shows how we can take action to adapt to climate mobility. We explain the complex topic and make it relevant to a broad public – from those learning about the topic to those managing the future of climate mobility – while not losing the perspective of how climate mobility is already impacting people’s lives.”
