|Full Project Title:||Collaborative Research: Bangladesh Delta: Assessment of the Causes of Sea-Level Rise Hazards and Integrated Development of Predictive Modeling Towards Mitigation and Adaptation|
|Full Call Title:||Coastal2012|
|Project Objective:||Band-AID proposes to build a robust Belmont Challenge identified Earth System Analysis & Prediction System (ESAPS) for Bangladesh, to adapt/mitigate the detrimental hazards including sea-level rise.
Band-AID will quantify (1) causes of sea-level rise and land motion and their robust vertical datum link, and (2) human interactions that governs coastal vulnerability in Bangladesh. This knowledge will be used for the integrated development of a natural and social science framework employing robust predictive modelling towards the adaption of sea-level rise and other hazards in coastal Bangladesh.
|Call Objective:||The purpose of this call was to promote the development, comparison and transfer of coastal scientific approaches. The focus was on the vulnerability, resilience and adaptation options of coastal societal, managed and natural systems to multiple drivers.
