Kulima director participating in DECCMA whole consortium meeting in Accra

Keta sea wallDr Katharine Vincent is in Accra 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 the 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 will bring together all consortium partners to assess progress and share information on emerging findings, and plan for the publication of data analysis to date. Ghana's Minister for Environment, Science and Technology will open the meeting

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.

New DECCMA publication on evaluating adaptation pathways with inputs from Kulima

delta lifeThe Deltas, Vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration and Adaptation (DECCMA) project has released a new working paper, co-authored by Dr Katharine Vincent, entitled "A framework for the design and evaluation of adaptation pathways in large river deltas". DECCMA aims to identify gender-sensitive adaptation options that are appropriate for the 500 million people globally that live in large deltas. The paper outlines a number of potential adaptation pathways – based on different political development aspirations – and suitable criteria against which to measure the success of those pathways in enabling adaptation. This framework will inform DECCMA's system dynamics model that will be used to simulate future environmental change, migration patterns, and adaptation options in deltas in the context of a changing climate.

consortium meetingFollowing on from the Adaptation Futures 2016 conference, Dr Katharine Vincent is now in Wageningen for the Annual Learning Review of the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA) programme. The Annual Learning Review brings together the four CARIAA projects: ASSAR, HI-AWARE, PRISE and DECCMA. Kulima is one of the partners in DEltas, vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration and Adaptation (DECCMA). DECCMA 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, the Mahanadi and the Volta.

Kulima director in Southampton with the DECCMA northern team

Ganges deltaDr Katharine Vincent is at the University of Southampton this week to work with colleagues in the northern team of the DECCMA project. DEltas, vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration as an Adaptation 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; the Mahanadi; and the Volta. Kulima's involvement is to ensure gender is integrated throughout the project (from proposal development to analysis). The meeting will focus on activities for the upcoming whole consortium meeting in Ghana.

Kulima director in Norwich to present DECCMA’s approach to gender

Women in IndiaDr Katharine Vincent is in Norwich this week to present DECCMA's approach to gender at a training course on "Researching Gender: Concepts and Methods" at the University of East Anglia. The training course runs regularly but has been customised for the various projects taking place within the Collaborative Adaptation Research in Africa and Asia programme. The DEltas, vulnerability and Climate Change; Migration as an Adaptation (DECCMA) project is working in three deltas: the Ganges-Meghna-Brahmaputra; the Mahanadi; and the Volta. The project recently published a working paper, written by Kulima, on DECCMA's Approach to the Incorporation of Gender.
