This document explores the links between ocean and marine ecosystems, climate change and human mobility. The International Organization of Migration (IOM) and the Ocean and Climate Platform (OCP) have combined their efforts in order to address this growing challenge. As such, this document is intended for parties interested in the area of migration, environment, and climate change.
The innovative partnership between the IOM and OCP focuses on three key areas of collaboration:
- Improving the understanding and awareness of the interactions between these three phenomena;
- Undertaking joint advocacy in key policy processes at the international, regional and national levels; and
- Developing new solutions, building capacity and supporting the implementation of projects and programmes at the regional, national and local levels, in order to address key issues around ocean and marine ecosystem change, climate change and migration and provide solutions for vulnerable communities.
