Kulima director in Nairobi for design meeting of the Western Indian Ocean Deltas Exchanges and Research Network

deltaDr Katharine Vincent is in Nairobi this week to participate in the design meeting for a new initiative – the Western Indian Ocean Deltas Exchanges and Research Network (WIODER). The project will be a partnership between a number of organisations and programmes with interests in environmental and social sustainability of deltas within a context of climate change. These include IDRC, Institut de Recherche pour le Developpment, UNESCO-IHE, and a variety of African universities and research institutions. The project is particularly intended to build on lessons learned and test transferability from existing projects in which the partnering institutions are involved – including Deltas, Vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration and Adaptation (DECCMA).
