We helped the UN Human Rights Office design a series of animated stories to highlight the rights of Pacific Island migrants and seasonal workers who have been impacted by climate change.
This series highlights a number of stories where Pacific Island migrants have been directly seeking employment opportunities to help increase the resilience of their homes and communities from the increasing impacts from climate change.
In 2022 separate reports from the UN Human Rights Office and the New Zealand Human Rights Commission found that many of these seasonal migrants faced a range of challenges including the ability to safely raise concerns with employers or observe religious beliefs, such as attending church on Saturdays or Sundays.
Efforts to highlight the voices of Pacific migrant workers could help to further strengthen and improve temporary labour schemes in countries like New Zealand and Australia.
