Mexico: Climate displaced community needs urgent relocation

Eighty-four people from the “El Bosque” community, in southern Mexico, were evacuated to Frontera village (12 km
far from El Bosque) on 1 November 2023 due to sea level rise and the devastating effects of the climate crisis.
Mexican authorities promised to relocate the community in April 2023 in the face of the terrible impacts of sea level
rise, that has threatened the community since 2019. Despite the continued destruction of homes and critical
infrastructure, the relocation has not yet materialized. The Mexican State must guarantee the human rights of the
people from El Bosque in face of the current humanitarian emergency, and immediately provide participatory and
just relocation.
