Diaspora 4 Climate Action: Leveraging the Potential of Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change through Diaspora Engagement in Albania, Bangladesh, Ghana and Jamaica, is an initiative funded by the IOM Development Fund (IDF) which aims to strengthen global action on climate change through diaspora engagement with their countries of origin. 
Over 24 months (1 January 2023 – 31 December 2024), IOM will work with diaspora groups in the UK and with governments and other key stakeholders in Albania, Bangladesh, Ghana and Jamaica to build sustainable links that can help them to achieve more effective and coordinated climate action. The Diaspora for Climate Action project (D4C) will support government efforts to address climate change impacts in priority sectors which have been identified in Nationally Determined Contributions and National Adaptation Plans and provide a potential model for other countries to engage with and empower their diasporas in shaping national climate change policies and programming together with governments and other actors.
