Migration Requires Cooperation

You need to know..

There is no doubt that climate change is a main driver of migration and a root of other drivers for both internal migration (rural to urban areas) and international migration.

According to the IPCC Assessment report II: migration has been exacerbated by a series of floods and droughts.  Land loss in coastal areas resulting from inundation of sea-level rise as a result of climate change is likely to lead to increased displacement of resident populations.

our future reality.

We have the choice to act and ensure that our communities are prepared. Reality is we are dealing with impacts of climate change now. It is our decision to start today and make tomorrow ready for massive human movement.

Create a plan and nurture partnerships.

We believe in a sustainable future where people’s power promotes and maintains a healthy environment and builds a society that is just, prosperous and socially and economically equitable in our changing climate.
 

Successful planning and preparation requires communication and cooperation. We can do this!
