Overview of the consultancy service

Human mobility in the context of climate change (HMCCC) is an umbrella term to describe changes of residence in anticipation or response to climate change impacts, and encompasses (internal) migration, forced displacement and planned relocations. More intense and/or frequent extreme weather events as well as gradual changes in the climate and environment are already affecting many people and their livelihoods. In the future, the adverse effects of climate change will continue to have significant impacts on human mobility and be major influencing factors in people’s decisions to leave their homes. Existing migration patterns are most likely to intensify.

At the global and regional level, data and knowledge need to be improved to shape development-oriented approaches to manage and facilitate migration, reduce internal displacement, and achieve transparent, participatory, and demand-oriented relocation.

To address these issues, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) commissioned the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH with implementing a Global Programme (GP) Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change. The Programme’s principal goal is to improve applied knowledge relating to the sustainable management of human mobility in the context of climate change in our partner regions as well as in German and international cooperation. The Programme focuses on:

  • Supporting our partners at regional, national, and sub-national level in managing HMCCC through participatory approaches.
  • Developing information and resources on HMCCC. These processes will involve relevant stakeholders, including from knowledge-based institutions and academia, and closing subject-related gaps e.g., through capacity building and institutionalizing exchange platforms.
  • Supporting international processes by feeding knowledge and experiences from the partner regions into German and international development cooperation.

Through the ongoing collaboration between the GP and IGAD, partners have pointed to funding gaps as a major constraint to their ability to implement HMCCC-related projects in the region, particularly with respect to adaptation and resilience activities for the communities who are suffering from the impacts of climate change. This situation is indicative of the widespread gap between growing needs and available resources at the global level and the need to mobilize more financing. Considering this, the Global Programme is launching in collaboration with the IGAD Migration Porgramme and ICPAC, a financing study for HMCCC-related projects implemented by the two units. It is also to be noted that the Global Programme has previously carried out a global study [1] on the main sources of financing HMCCC, as well as existent financial tools and instruments.

This study has the following objectives:

  1. Through consultations with the IGAD Migration Programme and ICPAC, identify the relevant projects relating to HMCCC that planned or are currently being implemented by the two organizations and for which there is a need for financing. Among these projects, under the direction of ICPAC, the IGAD Migration Programme and the GP, select a few flagship projects for which a funding strategy will be produced.
  2. Create a mapping of actors and donors operating in the region and across the globe in the field of HMCCC and isolating potential source of financing for the previously identified projects.
  3. Develop concrete and actionable recommendations as well as a strategy to access financing including comprehensive processes, timeline, guidelines, and an outreach strategy.
