Migration and Resettlement

Precarious Places 

Dr Helen Adams
 
Lebanon has absorbed over a million-people fleeing the conflict in Syria. Weak governance and limited resources threaten the wellbeing of newly arrived populations and exacerbate tensions with host populations. The protracted nature of the Syrian conflict requires consideration of long term solutions to the refugee crisis.

Deltas, Vulnerability & Climate Change: Migration & Adaptation (DECCMA)

Dr Helen Adams (King College London)
Robert Nicolls (Southhampton University)

The adaptive strategies available to deltas residents (e.g. disaster risk reduction, land use management or polders) may not be adequate to cope with pervasive, systematic, or surprise changes associated with climate change. Hence large movements of deltaic people are often projected under climate change. DECCMA is an approximately 5 year long programme of applied research on the adaptation options, limits and potential in deltaic environments to current weather variability and extremes, as well as climate change.

Social-Ecological Systems

 

ESPA

 

ESPA (Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation)

Lead by Prof. Robert Nicholls

The overall aim of ESPA Deltas is to provide policy makers with the knowledge and tools that enable them to evaluate the effects of policy decisions on ecosystem services and people's livelihoods. This links science to policy at the landscape scale and engages national level policy processes that bring impacts to the community level.
