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  on Thursday 23rd November (room C21, Pariser Building, Sackville Street) at 1.00pm. 

 

Supporting climate change adaptation in rural Tanzania: is promoting resilience in transitional communities sufficient?

Dr. Susannah Sallu, University of Leeds

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.
