CCEMA is a multi-stakeholder global partnership aiming to bring together actors representing a range of perspectives including environment, migration, development and humanitarian assistance. Its objective is to bring migration considerations to the environment, development, and climate change agendas and vice versa.
CCEMA was founded in response to the growing realisation that there are complex interdependencies among climate change, environmental degradation and migration. There is a need and a substantial scope for building synergies among these domains in policy, research and action. This requires interdisciplinary collaboration and the development of comprehensive approaches.
The CCEMA alliance was initiated in April 2008 at an expert meeting in Munich, Germany. Membership in the Alliance is open to organizations and individuals with a demonstrated interest and engagement in the climate change, environment and migration field and a commitment to the purpose and objectives of CCEMA. The members are (in alphabetical order):

The alliance provides a platform for interdisciplinary broad-based regional, international, and global collaboration and coordination to:
