Work packages

The interdisciplinary project DeltAdapt is structured in three research clusters: i) State of socio-ecological systems and drivers of change, ii) Changes of soil- and water related ecosystem services, and iii) Implications for livelihood and climate. Each of these cluster is further divide into two work packages (WP) to facilitate the multidisciplinary approach.

Cluster A) State of socio-ecological systems and drivers of change

WP1000: Land use options and typology of farming systems

Task 1100: Analyses of current and historical farming systems
Task 1200: Monitoring of land use dynamics

WP2000: Drivers of change

Task 2100: Exploration of relevant drivers
Task 2200: In-depth assessment of past and current drivers of change
Task 2300: Analysis of the spatial and temporal trajectories of relevant drivers

WP3000: Soil productivity and yield potentials

Task 3100: Assess soil property changes from rice to shrimp farming and aquaculture in the prevailing cropping systems of the Mekong and Red River Deltas
Task 3200: Assessing soil property changes and yield potentials after soil selling

Cluster B) Changes of soil- and water related ecosystem services

WP4000: Pollution and food safety
