This open and free photo training and contest seeks to inspire the creation and dissemination of images that explore the impact of climate change on the lives of Caribbean people. An unique opportunity to explore the link between climate-related events, such as hurricanes, floods and sea-level rise, and migration, displacement and planned relocation. Your chance to gain widespread exposure: Your work will be exhibited and published around the world.
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
