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. ICAAD is 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 evolving around climate displacement and migration, yet these laws need additional development to ensure those most impacted are protected. For Ex., women, girls, and trans people face much higher levels of gender based violence (GBV) in times of natural disasters - planning should ensure their protection. There is a great need to raise the voices of Indigenous communities, including youth, in designing climate justice policies and actions at the local level.

Solution

The global Covid-19 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.

Long-Term Impact

Project outcomes will provide an urgently-needed framework for preparing host communities for climate migration in relation to gender-based violence in New Zealand and to advance climate justice in Micronesia. This is critical in creating collectively envisioned equitable futures in New Zealand, leading towards a regional and global blueprint for equipping young Indigenous activists in forging more sustainable futures. Your advocacy for climate & gender justice is critical! Donate today!
