Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative (CARIAA) / Initiative de recherche concertée sur l'adaptation (IRCAAA)

 



The Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA) aims to build the resilience of vulnerable populations and their livelihoods in these three hot spots by supporting collaborative research to inform adaptation policy and practice. Our focus is in Africa and Asia.

IDRC and the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) are partnering to support this program, which runs until 2019.

L’Initiative de recherche concertée sur l’adaptation en Afrique et en Asie (IRCAAA) vise à renforcer la résilience des populations vulnérables et de leurs moyens de subsistance dans ces trois zones cruciales en soutenant la recherche concertée en vue d’éclairer les politiques et pratiques d’adaptation. Les travaux menés dans le cadre de l’IRCAAA seront concentrés en Afrique et en Asie.

L’initiative, qui prendra fin en 2019, bénéficie du soutien conjugué du CRDI et du Department for International Development (DFID) du Royaume-Uni.
