Expert Working Group, EWG on Vulnerability jointly organized by UNU-EHS, University of Can Tho and WISDOM
A three day workshop has been held at CTU in the Mekong Delta. 20 experts from the field of Vulnerability and Climate Change discussed topics such as Vulnerability Assessment of Delta Regions, Vulnerability Indicators, Coping Capacity Mechanisms, Vulnerability Reduction Strategies, and Disaster Resilience. The Workshop brought together specific scientists and PhD students of the WISDOM project with experts from countries such as Australia, Japan, Great Britain, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and UN agencies. For detailed information about the outcome of the Workshop, EWG leader Jörn Birkmann at UNU can be contacted.
