Adaptations around mobilities, flows and migration
This area of work outlined and addressed a research agenda to understand the implications of the dynamic flows that occur within and between places and ecosystems, for the creation of more sustainable places.
Sustainability impacts related to 'place' are to a large extent determined by the flows that occur within and between places, including flows of people, money, energy, water, soil, species, natural resources, produce, manufactured goods, waste and vehicles. There is therefore a need to understand the dynamics of sustainable places, by considering the relationships within and between places in terms of these flows of resources, mobilities and migrations.
This package considered flows at multiple scales, including ecosystems, the dynamics of which must be understood to improve the chances of sustainability in a rapidly changing environment.
