IDRC, UK research consortia to tackle adaptation issues

| | No Comments


MONITORING REPORT ISB: Canadas International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the UKs Department for International Development (DFID) have announced the Asian institutions that would be part of four new multi-partner research consortia for tackling the impacts of climate change in Africa and Asia.

Funded under the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA) programme, a seven-year, CAD 70 million research initiative, the consortia takes a fresh approach to understanding climate change and finding ways to adapt in some of the most vulnerable regions of Africa and Asia.

Organized around four multi-regional consortia, CARIAA will focus on three types of “hot spots,” namely semi-arid regions in Africa and South and Central Asia; major river deltas in Africa and South Asia; and the Himalayan River Basins, with a view to contributing to effective policies and action on the ground.
