DECCMA Northern Team Meeting

During the 18th and the 2oth of 0 May 2015, the Northern Team of DECCMA (DEltas, vulnerability and Climate Change; Migration as an Adaptation) research project, are meeting in Bilbao at the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3).

20 scientific experts will be discussing the key research decisions of the projects and will cover the updates on WP activities carried out and future planning.

Description of the DECCMA research project:

With their large and often poor populations in low-lying areas, deltas have long been seen as highly vulnerable to climate change and non-climate drivers with, in the most extreme, large-scale displacement of people being the result. Migration is a complex process which is already occurring in all deltas, largely independent of climate change. Most research on deltas and migration tends to focus on individual system elements and issues rather than taking a systems-level perspective. This fails to consider the wider consequences of climate change and the interdependence between these phenomena and people’s behaviour. In contrast to previous research, this programme of research takes a systemic and multi-scale analytical perspective to understand gendered vulnerability and adaptation in deltas under a changing climate by analysing four contrasting populous delta systems in South Asia and Africa where there is significant potential for migration.
The dual research aims are:
•    to assess migration as an adaptation in deltaic environments with a changing climate
•    to deliver policy support to create the conditions for sustainable gender-sensitive adaptation.
