Adapting to change: People and policies

Adapting to change: People and policies
Adapting to change: People and policies
Deltas are shifting, subsiding, morphing environments endlessly adapting to changes in sediment flows, water levels, storms, floods and sea level rise, both naturally and, increasingly, through human effort. Human activity and settlements within deltas and their watersheds contribute to the vulnerable environment within which deltas produce food, support commerce, and residents manage their lives and livelihoods. Delivering secure places and improving ability to adapt and fostering resilience is a huge challenge in rapidly changing delta landscapes in the Anthropocene.

Abstract

Deltas are shifting, subsiding, morphing environments endlessly adapting to changes in sediment flows, water levels, storms, floods and sea level rise, both naturally and, increasingly, through human effort. Human activity and settlements within deltas and their watersheds contribute to the vulnerable environment within which deltas produce food, support commerce, and residents manage their lives and livelihoods. Delivering secure places and improving ability to adapt and fostering resilience is a huge challenge in rapidly changing delta landscapes in the Anthropocene.
