Background of the project:

The objective of the Urban Management of Internal Migration due to Climate Change (UMIMCC) project is to improve the living conditions of climate migrants in selected settlements in Rajshahi through demand-oriented measures. In order to make migration a successful adaptation strategy for both climate migrants and the host cities, this includes an improvement of the basic urban infrastructure in the settlements, the generation of short- and long-term income opportunities, as well as the identification of successful strategies to utilize the economic potential of climate migrants for the economic development of the host city.
