Climate Change


The goal of the Climate Change program is to support partnerships and networks that build evidence for solutions and the use of technology to generate social and economic gains and guard against future climate impacts.


The program has three priorities:

  • Generate new knowledge and inform policy in hotspots vulnerable to climate change
  • Increase the resilience of small and medium-sized cities to climate change paying particular attention to  reducing the vulnerability of women; and
  • Facilitate the financing of climate adaptation strategies, especially from private sources.

The Climate Change program funds research exclusively through competitive calls. Announcements and details on eligibility and thematic focus for funding opportunities will be posted on IDRC’s funding page.
