November 2016: The Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA) launched a website showcasing the latest research conducted under a common research programme on climate change adaptation. The research is carried out by four consortia: Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR); Deltas, Vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration and Adaptation (DECCMA); Himalayan Adaptation, Water, and Resilience (HI-AWARE); and Pathways to Resilience in Semi-Arid Economies (PRISE).

The latest publications address: challenges to knowledge brokering in developing countries; challenges, successes and priorities associated with “communicating climate change for adaptation;” and the consortia’s contribution to Adaptation Futures 2016. CARIAA’s research aims to generate and share new knowledge on vulnerability and adaptation in hot spots, inform better policy and practice through engagement, and build new capacities by strengthening expertise among researchers, policymakers and practitioners.

CARIAA is a seven-year program (2012-2019) jointly funded by Canada’s International Development Research Center (IDRC) and the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).
