The key areas are identifying the hotspot effects of 1.5°C global warming; strengthening adaptation; addressing gender and social inequality through inclusive adaptation; understanding migration in the context of adaptation; and strengthening resilience through private sector adaptation. The report elaborates on each key area and provides links to related information. Its conclusions also outline implications for the climate change research community at large.

Between 2012 and 2019, IDRC and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development funded CARIAA to help build resilience for people who live in high-risk climate hotspots across Africa and Asia. Under a collaborative consortia model, CARIAA sought to inform climate change adaptation policy and practice through concerted research efforts.
