Summary

Climate-induced displacement and migration is an increasingly urgent global issue. Past disasters indicate that vulnerable populations, such as women, youth, and trans people who are displaced by disasters in the Pacific face additional risks including gender-based violence. We are building relationships and collaborating to develop a common vision for how to prepare for climate migration and displacement, with a focus on the Pacific, in a way that reduces structural discrimination.

Challenge

International and national laws are already evolving around climate displacement and migration, and are in need of additional development. Further, there has been little attention paid to preparations to support those displaced especially in terms of preventing gender-based violence (GBV). Furthermore, there is a need to raise the voices of Indigenous communities, including youth, in designing climate justice.

Solution

This global pandemic has shown we must move proactively and collaboratively to prepare for crises. As an organization, ICAAD believes that no single domain of expertise can address complex social problems like GBV or climate change. This project will produce a deeper understanding of what we can predict in terms of the impact of climate change on human rights in Pacific countries as well as a coalition-built design of how host governments need to prepare for climate migration to reduce GBV.

Long-Term Impact

The learnings from this project will provide an urgently-needed framework for preparing host communities for climate migration in relation to gender-based violence in New Zealand and to further climate justice in Micronesia. This will be critical in creating collectively envisioned equitable futures in New Zealand and lead the way to provide a regional and global blueprint for equipping young Indigenous activists to lead us into more sustainable futures.
