Navigating Waves of Change: Chronicles of Resilience and Transitions in Bangladesh Small-Scale Fisheries

Small-scale fisheries in Bangladesh provide a dynamic setting of ecosystems, vulnerabilities, adaptation, resilience, and uncertainties caused by changing climate and blue growth. As the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events are expected to increase, it is crucial to understand how fishers and fish resources are affected by it and how their daily responses contribute to their ability to adapt to changing weather conditions. Using a mixed method approach, our four-year research identifies and investigates the impacts, response and adaptation strategies adopted by small-scale fishers in Moheshkhali and Patharghata upazila of Bangladesh to deal with extreme weather events and mega development projects.

Food and Nutrition In-(security) in the Caribbean: Perspectives from Socio-metabolic Research (SMR)

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are on the frontlines of climate change and consistently rank high on a range of risk and climate vulnerability indices. In this talk, a socio-metabolic research (SMR) perspective will be adopted to analyze the challenges of food and nutrition insecurity in the Caribbean. From being a net exporter of food, the region underwent a transition in the 1970s and now imports 83% of its total food requirements. Yet, 67.5% of the population faces food and nutrition insecurity, in contrast to the global average of 27.6%. What does this mean for the region’s food security when subject to shocks such as the Covid-19 pandemic? And where are the barriers, and opportunities for a transition from vulnerability to viability?
