    The overall goal of the project is to increase the protection of Pacific Islanders who are vulnerable to the impacts of climate change displacement. The project purpose (specific goal) is to improve the capacity of PIC’s to better plan and manage the impacts of climate change on migration. In the ‘target countries’ of Kiribati, Tuvalu and Nauru the PCCM Project will have national actions aimed at institutional strengthening through developing migration indicators and sharing of information on labour migration; gathering data on community attitudes to climate change induced migration; assisting with the development of climate change responses and national action strategies to mitigate the risk of displacement; and enhancing national capacity to effectively participate in regional, bilateral and global schemes on labour migration.
