This open access, online book reports on analysis by the ESPA Deltas project. The project used a model, the Delta Dynamic Integrated Emulator Model (ΔDIEM), to analyse the present and future of the vast Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna delta in a policy-relevant way in order to benefit ecosystems, livelihoods and people.

It addresses the evolving framings and contexts of ecosystem services for poverty alleviation, reviews the impacts of ongoing drivers of change and presents new ways to achieve sustainable wellbeing, equity, diversity, and resilience.
