Climate change, migration and adaptation in deltas: Key findings from the DECCMA project

Source(s):  Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA)
Deltas, Vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration and Adaptation (DECCMA)

This publication summarises DECCMA's key findings on the present and future situation of deltas, highlights some of the impacts the research has had on policies and plans in Bangladesh, India and Ghana, and reflects on the capacity that has been built through the DECCMA project.

Deltas are home to 500 million people worldwide and known as a climate change “hotspot” – a place where high exposure to climate stresses coincides with high levels of vulnerability. DECCMA has been undertaking research on climate and environmental change, migration and adaptation in three delta systems: the transboundary Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna megadelta (comprising the Indian Bengal delta, as well as the bulk in Bangladesh), the Mahanadi delta in India, and the Volta in Ghana.
