The increasing acknowledgment of the links between ocean and marine ecosystems, climate change and human mobility encouraged the International Organization of Migration (IOM) and the Ocean and Climate Platform (OCP) to combine their efforts in order to address this growing challenge.
This innovative partnership focuses on three key areas of collaboration:
(a) improving the understanding and awareness of the interactions between these three phenomena;
(b) undertaking joint advocacy in key policy processes at the international, regional and national levels; and
(c) 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.
