During the «Deutscher Geographie Kongress» (DKG, German Geography Congress) and the «Junger Geographie Kongress» (JKG, Young Geography Congress) held in Kiel from the 25.09. until the 30.09.2019 our doctoral researcher Lena Reimann held a presentation with the title «How will sea-level rise affect human migration? Exploring potential impacts of sea-level rise on spatial population change until 2100». In this she presented the potential impacts of sea-level rise under a range of socioeconomic, adaptation, and SLR scenarios, using a spatial population downscaling model.
On the 6 November our doctoral researcher Lena Reimann participated in the annual DMDU Meeting in Delft and held a presentation with the title «Exploring the effects of adaptation strategies on population migration under uncertain sea-level rise» that was prepared by herself, Bryan Jones, Claudia Wolff and Prof. Dr. Athanasios Vafeidis. In this presentation different Shared Socialeconomic Pathways and their expected outcome on migration were explored: Under the SSP1 («Build with Nature»), SSP3 («Save yourself») and SSP5 («Hold the line»).
The whole presentation can be seen here.
At the 21-22 June 2019 our groupleader Prof. Dr. Athanasios T. Vafeidis was at the «Facing the Challenge» International Conference on the impacts of climate change on the cultural heritage. There he held a presentation regarding the «Sea-level rise impacts on the Mediterranean UNESCO World Heritage Sites».
