Kulima director in Kathmandu for CARIAA Annual Learning Review

DECCMA stand at ALR 2016Dr Katharine Vincent is in Kathmandu this week to participate in the 2017 Annual Learning Review for the Collaborative Adaptation Research in Africa and Asia programme. The meeting brings together researchers from the four CARIAA programmes that are investigating adaptation in different hotspots: HI-AWARE (snowpack river basins), ASSAR (semi-arid regions), PRISE (semi-arid economies) and DECCMA (deltas). The purpose is to discuss emerging findings and highlight opportunities to inform adaptation policy and practice. Katharine will also participate in a pre-meeting with her Research-into-Use counterparts to ensure cross-project learning and maximise impact throughout the remainder of the programme.

DECCMA meetingDr Katharine Vincent is in Southampton this week to participate in the whole consortium meeting of the DEltas, vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration and Adaptation (DECCMA) project. DECCMA is one project within the Collaborative Adaptation Research in Africa and Asia programme.  It focuses on the extent to which, and circumstances under which, migration is, and may be, used as an adaptation in three deltas: the Ganges-Meghna-Brahmaputra and Indian Bengal delta, the Mahanadi, and the Volta. Kulima's involvement is to ensure gender is integrated throughout the project, and to play a role in ensuring that research findings are effectively communicated beyond an academic audience. The meeting with bring together all consortium partners to assess progress and share information on emerging findings, and plan for the publication of data analysis to date.

 

Kulima directors in Bangladesh for DECCMA whole consortium kick off meeting

DECCMA meetingDr Katharine Vincent and Ms Tracy Cull are currently in Dhaka for the whole consortium meeting of the Deltas, Vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration and Adaptation (DECCMA) project. DECCMA is one of four projects under the Collaborative Adaptation Research in Africa and Asia (CARIAA) programme and comprises a consortium of the University of Southampton, University of Ghana, National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Science (Egypt), Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, and Jadavpur University in India, working in four deltas: Volta, Nile, Ganges-Meghna-Brahmaputra and Mahanadi. Kulima's role is to ensure that a gender-sensitive approach is taken to the planned research, and to facilitate the process of applying for international adaptation finance to support identified good practices in migration as adaptation.
