Title: Understanding slow onset disaster in the age of climate change
Lead Author: Laituri, Melinda J
Abstract: Slow onset disasters are representative of the types of challenges the scientific community will face in the 21st Century. A slow onset disaster is the intersection of changing environmental conditions, lagging adaptive capacity of both human and ecological communities, and pressures of chronic poverty and disease. This research challenge focuses on societal flexibility and survival capacity through developing solution-based science to address the seemingly intractable issues associated with climate change. The key aim of this challenge is to develop interdisciplinary approaches that utilize innovative methodologies to comprehensively address the legacy landscapes that comprise the current context in which societies are situated. The intersection of climate change, sudden and slow onset disaster have a cumulative effect upon localities  understanding local response and resilience are needed to identify solutions where recovery from such events is both slow and long term. The research challenge is to develop comprehensive databases, sampling strategies, and monitoring schemes that link science and research to tangible policy-driven solutions.
