The Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) program is a joint initiative of the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) and IDRC that concluded in 2012. Over the course of the program, from 2006-2012, researchers in 33 African countries produced a wealth of new knowledge on climate change adaptation.
IDRC documents the CCAA story in an interactive report, New Pathways to Resilience. The report provides a guided tour of the program’s aims, efforts, and chief contributions. Throughout the report, you will find links to program and project resources, and directions for delving further into its scientific findings.
IDRC and the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) are funding a new program on climate change adaptation. The Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA) began in 2012 and will run until 2019.
The call for concept notes on collaborative adaptation research in three hot spots is open until April 4, 2013.
