New Pathways to Resilience: Interactive report on CCAA program
The Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) program was a joint initiative of the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) and IDRC that supported research and capacity building to reduce climate change vulnerability in Africa. Over the course of the program, from 2006-2012, researchers in 33 African countries produced a wealth of new knowledge on climate change adaptation. One of the results of this: nearly 500 research outputs.
IDRC documents the CCAA story in an interactive report, New Pathways to Resilience. The report provides a guided tour of the program’s aims, efforts, and chief contributions. It describes the program's principal outcomes, the mentoring it provided to African researchers, and the lessons it offers for future adaptation efforts in Africa, and elsewhere. Throughout the report, you will find links to program and project resources, and directions for delving further into its scientific findings.
