Projektinformation

Beskrivning

The research project will be divided into three themes. The first theme will develop a conceptual immobility model, which incorporates climate risk hotspots, and what possible thresholds, governance barriers and systemic structures that determine immobility. The second theme will examine how immobility is affected by, and related to, local factors, capabilities, and moorings in social life, by comparing insights and empirical data from Malmö and Falsterbo in Sweden, Belém in Brazil , Beira in Mozambique, Freeport in the Bahamas, and the Volta Delta in Ghana, which are all affected by sea level rise and erosion.

ITACHA, ImmobiliTy in a cHAnging ClimAte, is led by LUCSUS in collaboration with researchers in the Bahamas, Brazil, Ghana and Mozambique. It is funded by the Belmont Forum, a partnership of funding organisations, international science councils, and regional consortia committed to the advancement of transdisciplinary science. Other funders include Formas, Vetenskaprådet, SIDA, National Science Foundation, and the Inter-American Institute. It will run for 3 years.
