Living Deltas Hub 2nd Annual Research Meeting

Living Deltas held its second Annual Hub Research Meeting at the HHI Hotel in Kolkata between the 1st and 5th March 2020.  We were lucky to get the meeting in before the full effects of the Covid-19 pandemic hit (at the time of the meeting it was still classed by the WHO as an epidemic).  However, a number of our delta colleagues were sadly unable to join us from the Mekong delta, the UK and from Bangladesh due to restrictions imposed by the viral outbreak.  These friends were much missed.  The meeting opened on the Sunday morning with a meeting of the Hub with members of our external Advisory Board and we were delighted to have Nina Laurie, Advisory Board Chair, Kay Heuser, UKRI Representative and Katharine Vincent, AB member join us from the UK and South Africa respectively.  Living Deltas marked its first birthday with a beautiful cake baked by the HHI Hotel and kindly provided by our friends and hosts Sumana Banerjee and Tuhin Ghosh of Jadavpur University.  Nina Laurie did the honours and cut the cake in the absence of the PI and Deputy PI, Andy Large and Andy Henderson, who had left Newcastle on Friday evening, but who finally arrived in Kolkata at 3am on Monday morning.  While a hotel bed between each flight was restful, it didn’t help either the Advisory Board meeting or the Executive Board meeting which followed.  The fact that at that time we were all still Zoom amateurs meant poor connection to Doha and less-than-effective input from ‘the two Andys’.
