Emirates News Agency – African Observatory: We work with the UN to put ‘climate migration’ on the ‘Cop28’ agenda in the Emirates

Sharm El Sheikh, November 11 / WAM / Director of the African Observatory on Climate Migration, Ambassador Dr. Namira Negm, announced that the center, in collaboration with the United Nations Global Center for Climate Migration, is trying to include in the “cop28” agenda in the UAE next year the problem of climate migration in Africa, which by 2030 will lead to the displacement of 86, 1 million people from Africa to Northern Europe and by 2050 about 150 million people.

She added “WAM” in a statement to the Emirates News Agency on the sidelines of her participation in the “COP27” activities that are expected to increase significantly on the African continent as of 6 April, leading to many challenges in the region: security, health and nutrition .

She explained that the observatory, launched last year and affiliated with the African Union, aims to address the lack of data on migration in Africa, including that caused by climate change, and to provide a realistic picture of the magnitude of this problem and the mechanisms to deal with it, noting that in its early years the Observatory focused on raising awareness of the concept of climate change-induced migration. “These expectations come against a backdrop of global displacement within countries and across borders that has already reached record highs in recent years, while humanitarian response capacities are coming under increasing strain,” she added.

“At a time when development actors are playing a more active role and local responses are receiving more support, many refugees and displaced people are waiting years, if not decades, for solutions,” said the director of the African Observatory on Climate Migration.
“Protection tools and mechanisms need to adapt to new realities as governments increasingly adopt a tailored approach to addressing large-scale forced migration, including climate shocks,” continued Najm.
She reported that forced migration has increased due to climate and displacement has increased as a result of sudden disasters, which is already putting people in need around the world.
She noted that the Center participates in five main sessions of “COP27” activities to raise awareness of climate migration and the need to address this migration by working to address climate change with infrastructure and energy projects and the To reduce CO2 emissions in a way that improves the COP27 population stability in their areas of presence.
