River deltas
These are beautiful landforms where the river flows into the sea. Home to fertile soil and unique biodiversity, deltas are among the most productive ecosystems on earth. They support the lives and livelihoods of half a billion people. However, these people are facing threats like never before.
With increasing pressure from population growth, industrialisation and a rapidly changing climate, it is more important than ever that these valuable ecosystems and vulnerable communities are made more resilient to escalating risks.
Even though marginalised people are the first to be affected by climate-induced shifting weather patterns, droughts, floods and storms, their voices are often ignored in the planning process.
Does involving them result in local adaptation measures that are more favourable to them? And can nature-based solutions increase the resilience of communities and ecosystems in delta regions across the world?
Let’s find out.
