Thu 23 Nov: Supporting climate change adaptation in rural Tanzania, Tyndall Manchester

Thursday, November 23, 2017 - 13:00

Tyndall Manchester would like to invite you to attend the next talk in our seminar series “Supporting climate change adaptation in rural Tanzania: is promoting resilience in transitional communities sufficient?” by Dr. Susannah Sallu.

In this talk Susannah will draw on current research she is leading in collaboration with NGO partners in Tanzania, which focuses on the design and evaluation of integrated approaches to climate change adaptation. Susannah will academically reflect on the design and early implementation of a European Union funded adaptation programme that sets out to build resilience and increase the adaptive capacity of rural communities in the East Usambara mountains of Tanzania. She will ask to what extent the approach taken to date provides opportunities to promote adaptation pathways that are sufficient, fair and desirable for all.

Speaker bio: Susannah is an Associate Professor of Environment & Development based at the Sustainability Research Institute, University of Leeds. She is a member of the ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy and Priestley International Centre for Climate. Her research focusses on the interactions between, and governance of, human development and environmental change. Over the past 17 years Susannah’s work has focused on rural livelihood dynamics, governance and resilience in the context of environmental change.
