dc.description.abstract The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) convened this meeting to explore ways to mobilize and organize international research partnerships involving Canadian researchers and funding partners. Presentations of both regional and thematic perspectives were followed by discussion of research priorities and the elements and modalities that would constitute effective research partnerships. Participants agreed that there is a range of activities where collaboration between researchers from Canada and developing countries will bring mutual benefits and could facilitate progress to solve some of the most urgent problems that people from the South and the North are facing now as a consequence of changes in the climate. General consensus was that multidisciplinary, action research was a prerequisite to success. This research will be far from easy; it will indeed be scientifically challenging. Canadian researchers have much to gain from interaction with Southern researchers, who have, in many cases, made advances in methodological approaches to this type of research. Important for success are mechanisms to engage Canadian and Southern scientists in discussions of areas of interest and to facilitate funding collaboration among Canada’s major grant-making institutions. Young researchers and students are key resources and will play central roles in the process. en
