We want your input
In partnership with the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), IDRC will host a parallel event in Doha on December 2, 2012 to discuss the new Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA). This one-day event will introduce the program and its approach. Other activities include discussions with experts on research questions and lessons relevant to the program, as well as informal networking opportunities throughout the day.  
We invite all those interested in this new program — researchers, policymakers, practitioners — to join us and participate in the conversation as we prepare to launch a call for consortia in 2013.
