Migration plays a significant role as a response strategy for coping with climatic and non-climatic drivers of change among vulnerable households in Ghana. At the same time, it exacerbates gendered vulnerabilities with consequences for community resilience and national economic planning.
As climate change and extreme weather events increasingly threaten traditional landscapes and livelihoods of entire communities the need to study its impact on human migration and population displacement has never been greater.
The Pacific Climate Change and Migration (PCCM) project has two overarching goals:
- To increase protection of individuals and communities that are vulnerable to climate change displacement and migration through targeted national and regional policies and
- To increase labour mobility opportunities for Pacific Islanders, through well-managed labour migration schemes.
