At Risk: Environmental Mobility in African Coastal Cities

How to improve environmental mobility to and in cities

Africa is the most vulnerable continent to climate variability and change. In the face of the changing climate, many people seek new opportunities in cities. Publishing new data collected in a community-led effort in four coastal cities in Sub-Saharan Africa (Accra, Ghana; Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; Freetown, Sierra Leone; and Monrovia, Liberia), this study analyses the situation in low-income neighborhoods as in-migration hotspots. 

To harness the positive effects of migration on people and cities, this paper presents recommendations for action in four key areas: to develop knowledge on climate migration, to improve resilience in destination neighborhoods, to plan ahead as a city and to manage mobility at a national level.
