GP Insight "Climate Change and Migration in Africa: A Call for Action"

Climate change is gaining more and more attention as a driver of migration and displacement. Africa is particularly affected by its consequences, even though the continent barely contributes to global CO2 emissions. According to the World Bank, up to 86 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa could be forced to move internally due to the changing climate by 2050. In December 2020, high-level representatives from Africa and Europe came together to discuss this complex issue at our GP Conference “Climate Change and Migration: Point of No Return?! An African Perspective”.

The outcomes of this intercontinental exchange and the implications of climate change in Africa are summarized in our new publication GP Insight “Climate Change and Migration in Africa: A Call for Action”, which outlines the nexus between climate change and migration in more detail and shares insights of what had been discussed and advised by our African and European speakers.
