In Brief

About the project

The project focuses on the nexus of climate change and migration in urban areas and aims to document the living conditions of migrants in the coastal cities of Accra (Ghana), Freetown (Sierra Leone), Monrovia (Liberia) and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania). In cooperation with the transnational network Slum Dwellers International (SDI), the data gap on climate-induced migration in the sub-Saharan Africa region is to be closed. The study highlights existing strategies of climate-induced migration in these cities and identifies the role of local structures and organizations. The aim of the project is to develop a practice-oriented action plan to improve the situation for migrants in cities and to actively involve local actors in the process.
