Cyclone Displacement Risk Profile

Jan. 10, 2023

A number of UN agencies and partners established a Joint Programme funded under the Migration Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) to improve regional and national migration governance in the context of the adverse impacts of climate change and environmental degradation. To enhance this governance, evidence is key. The Joint Programme has therefore supported this study developing as an innovative solution to addressing risk modelling. Among the sudden onset hazard that are relevant in determining such important displacement figures cyclones play an important role at least for some of IGAD member states, namely Somalia, Djibouti and Eritrea.

Therefore, the compilation of a displacement risk profile forced by strong wind damages from cyclonic system seems an important piece of information to reconstruct the puzzle of displacement risk in the region.
