The Climate and Migration Coalition
We are an organisation concerned with the rights and welfare of anyone who moves due to the impacts of climate change. Find out more.
What we believe
Climate change will re-shape patterns of migration and displacement. Everyone has the right to move safely and legally. We believe in everyone’s right to move as a way of coping with the worst impacts of climate change.
What we do
We fight for humane and empowering policies that will protect people who move due to the impacts of climate change.

Who gets quoted by the media when they cover climate-linked migration? And how have those sources shaped the public debate?
