People on the Move in a Changing Climate

Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), People on the Move in a Changing Climate (PEMOCC) is a Sea Grant-led Research Coordination Network that fosters collaboration among diverse experts and stakeholders to address research needs related to climate-induced human mobility, its socioeconomic consequences, and its role in building resilience and adaptation to the impacts of climate change in US coastal and Great Lakes regions.

Despite increased reference to the link between climate change and human mobility, which includes displacement, migration and planned relocation, there is a lack of knowledge on how socioeconomic, cultural, political, and environmental processes impact these population shifts. PEMOCC leverages Sea Grant’s trusted relationships with local communities to facilitate transdisciplinary collaborations among researchers, practitioners, resource managers and coastal stakeholders to improve understanding of how climate change drives human populations both towards and away from coastal regions in the U.S.

This workshop in Anchorage is the final workshop in a series of workshops held across the U.S. This workshop will focus on Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and Pacific Island regions, and provide case studies of climate induced human mobility across the world. This includes both areas where coastal residents are moving away from the coasts, and those areas where we might see receiving communities.


The agenda is now available (April 6, 2023.)
