The OECS-GIZ Photo Contest pursues these objectives:
- raising awareness and improving knowledge of Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change (HMCCC) within the OECS region
- highlighting resilience strategies of individuals and communities affected by human mobility as a result of climate change
- generating discussions and knowledge exchange
The applicants are encouraged to express their creativity while portraying personal or collective stories of HMCCC which will shed light on the matters below:
- the impact of climate change on migration, displacement and planned relocation
- the impact of climate change on livelihoods
- the response and innovative strategies of individuals and/or communities to address these challenges, strengthen resilience and reduce the risk of displacement
Submissions will be analysed and the winning photos will be selected by a panel of judges which include the OECS Commission, GIZ and award-winner Saint Lucian photographer Kirk Elliot.
