Asian deltas are fertile areas with high population densities and food production that is vital for both local and global food supply and economy. However, these deltas are also low-lying and extremely prone to flooding from rivers and the sea due to climate change and human interventions. Currently, many large deltas, are undergoing radical changes that negatively impact their environmental, economic and social sustainability. It is therefore key to develop adaptation and mitigation strategies securing food production and improving livelihoods of local people and vulnerable groups, in line with the SDGs.
