African Climate Change Fellowship

Limited adaptive capacity is often cited as a major factor in vulnerability to climate change. IDRC's Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) aims to enable African societies to cope with climate change.

This grant will foster indigenous capacity to advance and apply scientific knowledge to climate change adaptation by supporting the pilot phase of the African Climate Change Fellowship program. The program will provide about 58 early-to-mid-career African professionals and researchers with policy, doctoral, post-doctoral and teaching fellowships.
