How does the project work?
The GCCM produces knowledge, builds consensus, and brokers partnerships across sectors, stakeholders, and levels of governance to anticipate, plan for and address climate mobility. It aims to promote the agency of people and communities at the frontline of the climate crisis, who are on the move, face forced displacement, or risk becoming stranded. The GCCM advances its mission through regional initiatives in climate-vulnerable regions across the globe, these efforts are pressed forward with relevant regional organizations, including in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Pacific, and the Middle East. These efforts are also supported by the GCCM’s Knowledge Hub and Solutions Lab. The Knowledge Hub drives innovative research, policy development, climate literacy, and action with the global Community of Practice and partners across regions. The Solutions Lab enables and advances GCCM flagship efforts, including on green skills and water solutions, with academic and research partners, solution-makers & entrepreneurs, and frontline communities.

Relevant regional organizations in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Pacific and the Middle East support these efforts.These efforts are complemented by the GCCM's Knowledge Hub and Solutions Lab. The Knowledge Hub drives innovative research, policy development and climate expertise with the global community of practice and partners in the regions. The Solutions Lab advances GCCM's landmark projects, such as green skills and water supply, through collaborations with academic and research partners, experts and entrepreneurs, and grassroots communities.
