Synthesizing Learning on Adaptation to Climate Change

Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA), a program is supported by IDRC and the United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DFID), supports three kinds of activity: research, capacity building and networking. Since 2006, CCAA has supported more than 30 participatory action research projects.

This project will provide a framework for capturing, consolidating and synthesizing the lessons learned in the course of CCAA-sponsored research, and a program-wide information base for disseminating the findings to key stakeholders such as regional bodies and donors. It will make use of both focused studies by commissioned authors, and learning forums that bring together CCAA project partners and other experts.
