Photographer: Climate-Induced Cultural Loss and Human Mobility (Maldives)

Loss and Damage Programme

Application Deadline:

March 28, 2023

Starting Date:

As soon as possible



SLYCAN Trust is is an internationally recognized non-profit think tank working on climate change, sustainable development, biodiversity and ecosystem conservation, animal welfare, and social justice including gender and youth empowerment. Our work spans the national, regional, and global level from policy analysis and evidence-based research to on-the-ground implementation.

SLYCAN Trust’s work programme on climate change adaptation and loss and damage (L&D) focuses on addressing climate-induced L&D through evidence-based policy and action under the UNFCCC process, with a special focus on climate-related human mobility, non-economic or cultural L&D, and resilience-building. The programme focuses on building the technical capacities of key stakeholders, including policymakers, to better engage in the UNFCCC negotiation process through national, regional, and international initiatives as well as the development of evidence-based products which facilitate national and regional position-building related to adaptation and L&D in the context of the UNFCCC negotiations. It also aims to enhance cross-regional collaboration to facilitate inclusive and participatory processes related to adaptation and L&D under the UNFCCC and amplify the voices of developing country stakeholders in key decision-making processes with enhanced technical capacity, evidence to demonstrate the impacts felt, and positions that build resilience of communities and ecosystems.

We are recruiting a photographer to create a portfolio of high-quality artistic photographs documenting the impacts of climate change in the country, focusing on 1-3 selected communities, sites, or structures that relate to human mobility (migration, disaster displacement, planned relocation) or cultural loss caused by climate change. The portfolio will be featured on the virtual knowledge portal set up by SLYCAN Trust, and several selected photos will be included in a photography exhibition that will take place in Bonn, Germany, during the United Nations Climate Conference in June 2023.
