Climate-Induced Migration in Africa and Beyond: Big Data and Predicative Analytics (CLIMB)

Aug 02 2023

In Senegal, as part of a project funded by the Belmont Forum, DPA and its academic and civil society partners will be utilizing “traditional” and “non-traditional” data, including mobile phone data, to understand human mobility induced by extreme weather events. Enabled by OPAL technology, these Call Detail Records (CDRs), provided through a partnership with Orange-Sonatel, will be layered with earth observation (EO), social media, survey, and official statistical data. This holistic approach will allow us to analyze migration processes from a from a multi-stage perspective and gain more insights about the temporality of climate-induced migration.
