    The CARIAA Novel Insights Briefs booklet compiles the key insights that emerged from CARIAA, on the most pertinent topics for climate adaptation, including: 1.5°C Warming, Migration, Gender and Social Equity, Effective ...
  • IRCAA (IRCAA / CARIAA, 2019-02)
    Le livret de la série sur les nouvelles connaissances de l’IRCAAA donne un aperçu des principales idées qui se sont dégagées de l’IRCAAA, sur les sujets les plus pertinents pour l’adaptation aux changements climatiques, y ...
  • Ishaq, Sultan; Ahmad, Bashir; Kamran, Ali; Raza, Nelufar; Ahmed Khan, Muneeb; Tahir Virk, Zeeshan; Doger, Salar Saeed; Khalid Jamil, Muhammad; Mustafa, Naveed; Mahmood, Talha; Hassan, Masooma (Himalayan Adaptation, Water and Resilience Research (HI-AWARE), 2017-11)
    This working paper is aimed at finding out the climate change adaptations going on across the three HI-AWARE Project Sites in Indus Basin, namely Hunza (High mountains), Soan Basin (Mid hill) and Chaj Doab ( Flood plains). ...
  • Dasgupta, Purnamita (HI-AWARE Consortium Secretariat, 2016-09)
    This paper provides a review of existing studies of the region and an assessment of climate-related risks for different climate change scenarios. This is an essential step towards understanding what adaptation measures are ...
  • Collier, E.; Maussion, F.; Nicholson, L.I.; Mölg, T.; Immerzeel, W.W.; Bush, A.B.G. (The Cryosphere, 2015-08)
    The Karakoram range of the Hindu-Kush Himalaya is characterized by both extensive glaciation and a widespread prevalence of surficial debris cover on the glaciers. Surface debris exerts a strong control on glacier ...
  • Bettini, Giovanni; Nash, Sarah Louise; Gioli, Giovanna (The Geographical Journal, published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2016-06)
    In recent debates on climate change and migration, the focus on the figure of ‘climate refugees’ (tainted by environmental determinism and a crude understanding of human mobility) has given ground to a broader conception ...
  • Lutz, Arthur F.; ter Maat, Herbert W.; Biemans, Hester; Shrestha, Arun B.; Wester, Philippus; Immerzeel, Walter W. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd., International Journal of Climatology, 2016-01)
    Climate change impact studies depend on projections of future climate provided by climate models. The number of climate models is large and increasing, yet limitations in computational capacity make it necessary to compromise ...
  • Rasul, Golam; Sharma, Bikash (Taylor & Francis , Climate policy, 2016-06)
    Developing countries face a difficult challenge in meeting the growing demands for food, water, and energy, which is further compounded by climate change. Effective adaptation to change requires the efficient use of land, ...
  • Lutz, A.F.; Immerzeel, W.W.; Kraaijenbrink, P.D.A.; Shrestha, A.B.; Bierkens, P. (PLOS One, 2016-11)
    The Indus basin heavily depends on its upstream mountainous part for the downstream supply of water while downstream demands are high. Since downstream demands will likely continue to increase, accurate hydrological ...
  • Thapa, Bhuwan; Scott, Christopher; Wester, Philippus; Varady, Robert (Elsevier Ltd., Science Direct, Current opinion on environmental sustainability, 2016-11)
    Small-scale irrigation systems managed by farmers are facing multiple challenges including competing water demand, climatic variability and change, and socioeconomic transformation. Though the relevant institutions for ...
  • Biemans, Hester; Siderius, Christian; Mishra, Ashok; Ahmad, Bashir (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2016-05)
    Especially in the Himalayan headwaters of the main rivers in South Asia, shifts in runoff are expected as a result of a rapidly changing climate. In recent years, our insight into these shifts and their impact on water ...
  • Dahri, Zakir Hussain; Ludwig, Fulco; Moors, Eddy; Ahmad, Bashir; Khan, Asif; Kabat, Pavel (Elsevier, Science of the total environment, 2016-01)
    Scarcity of in-situ observations coupled with high orographic influences has prevented a comprehensive assessment of precipitation distribution in the high-altitude catchments of Indus basin. Available data are generally ...
  • Gollnow, Sebastian (Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), 2016-04)
  • Prakash, Anjal; Cundill, Georgina; Scodanibbio, Lucia; Vincent, Katharine; Nathe, Nathalie; Morchain, Daniel; DeMaria-Kinney, Jesse; Soumelong Ehode, Lancelot; Sukla, Debabrat; Mishra, Arabinda; Piryani, Aneel (Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asis (CARIAA), 2019-02)
    This paper shares lessons from the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA), a seven-year transdisciplinary and cross-regional research programme that supported four consortia spanning Africa ...
  • Adhikari, Lipy; Hussain, Abid; Rasul, Golam (Sustainability 2017, 9, 291, MDPI., 2017-02)
    Neglected and underutilized food crops (NUFCs) have high nutritional value, but their role in achieving nutrition security is not adequately understood, and they do not feature in food and nutrition policies and programs ...
  • Daron, Joseph D. Dr (2014)
    This report provides a general overview of the regional climate in West Africa. A follow-up report that provides a specific focus on the climate of the semi-arid regions of West Africa is currently under development.
  • Karpouzoglou, Timothy; Vij, Sumit (WIREs Water, Wiley Periodicals, 2017-06)
    The waterscape is a perspective that has captured the imagination of diverse scholars interested in the interaction of water and society. This includes the way water travels in time and space and is shaped by culture and ...
