HABITABLE – a new research project on climate change and migration funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme will be coordinated by the Hugo Observatory and will involve several members of the MISTY project team.
With a total budget of 6.8 million euros, the HABITABLE project is the largest research project on climate change and migration ever to have been funded by the Horizon 2020 programme. HABITABLE seeks to advance the understanding of how climate affects the habitability of socio-ecological systems and transforms current and future migration and displacement patterns. It will be implemented by a diverse consortium associating 20 partners from different disciplines, coming from 17 countries across 3 continents. The consortium includes academic institutions, think tanks, NGOs and international organisations from Europe, West Africa, Southern Africa, East Africa and Southeast Asia.
Project MISTY looks forward to building synergies with HABITABLE.
