Interdisciplinary  Research

Areas of Focus

A Global Challenge

Now more than ever the world is facing challenges that need a collective response.

 

We are living in a globally inter-connected world where everything from climate change, pandemics and employment to conflict, water security and mass migration are linked and impact us all. The UK Government’s answer to some of the world’s most pressing challenges is 12 new Global Interdisciplinary Research Hubs which seek to develop creative and sustainable solutions to make the world, and the UK, safer, healthier and more prosperous.

We focus on : the Red River, Mekong and the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna.

 

The UKRI GCRF Living Deltas Hub will operate on a model of equitable partnerships with delta-dwellers and the research community working together. We will develop new knowledge and policies to safeguard delta futures through more resilient communities and sustainable development.

The GCRF harnesses the expertise of the UK’s world-leading researchers.

 

Working in tandem with their global research partner networks, focusing on: challenge-led, disciplinary and interdisciplinary research; strengthening capability for research, innovation and knowledge exchange; providing agile response to emergencies where there is an urgent research need.

 

Our Work Packages

 

Focuses

on heritage, livelihoods and delta living, and builds shared narratives of pasts, presents and alternative futures

 

 

Aims

to provide robust characterization and integrated risk-assessments of deltaic social-ecological systems

 

 

 

 

Develops

delta-level interventions to respond to and mitigate against foreseeable coastal system tipping points

 

Oversees

capacity-building and capacity-sharing towards better SDG attainment in our target delta social-ecological systems

 

Delivers

a natural and cultural heritage-sensitive, delta-specific SDG monitoring framework

 

 

Quantifies

how human impacts are changing deltas, and the consequences for natural and cultural heritage

  • Delta-specific, indicator-based SDG assessment framework to support vulnerable and marginalised groups
  • Low cost, stakeholder-driven, data-collection systems
  • Innovative Delta Health Index for environmental planning and governance
  • Delta level interventions to achieve sustainable coastal systems
  • Participatory capacity-building frameworks (communities, NGOs, authorities)
  • More equitable (gender, youth, women) livelihoods for delta dwellers
  • Sustainable management of delta landscapes
  • Stronger local to regional monitoring toward sustainable development
  • Better local and national policies for delta sustainability
