Through 360° storytelling, travel to the Marshall Islands and meet young people living on the front line of climate change.

Take a deeper look at how sea level rise, coastal erosion, and warming oceans are impacting entire communities and their migration decisions. 

Watch the stories of these inspiring young people looking to take action.


The Marshall Islands has an average elevation of less than two metres, making it extremely vulnerable to sea level rise.

Due to sea level rise and coastal erosion as a result of climate change, whole communities in small island states may need to relocate.

Drought, intensified by climate change is causing food shortages and impacting the livelihoods of farmers.

Support action that enables people living on the front lines of climate change to build a more sustainable future and make staying possible.

IOM is addressing the links between climate change and migration, working with governments and local communities to manage and prepare for climate migration.

We have projects supporting people on this front globally, from the Pacific to the Sahel and from the Andes to the Himalayan steppe.
