When a crisis hits, community organisations can draw upon six social dimensions of resilience. This brief highlights learnings from how communities in the Global South responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This brief is based on the analysis of water policies, as well as the narratives of men and women involved in drinking water management practices.
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.
This guide aims to make the findings of the IPCC's special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C accessible to practitioners and policy-makers working at global and regional scales. It provides an interpretation of the findings with a focus on the adaptation implications.
This paper assesses urbanisation in Bangalore, and India's agricultural policies, and identifies triggers of change in local and regional development that have led to adaptation-constrained spaces.
