The West Indian Ocean Deltas Exchange and Research Network (WIoDER) aims to support research, training, and pilot interventions in up to four Western Indian Ocean river deltas under pressure from human activity.
This research project will enable two mid-sized Indian cities and their catchments to transition toward an integrated climate-proof approach to water management, providing greater water security to residents.
For South Africa's burgeoning cities, climate change impacts - such as flooding, extreme weather, and heat waves - are expected to impose greater burdens on disadvantaged urban residents and municipal governments.
This joint initiative between IDRC and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network will help strengthen decision-making and scale-up effective action on climate resilient development to improve the livelihoods of those most affected by climate change in Latin America.
This project will provide funding to the Latin American and Caribbean Environmental Economics Network (LACEEP) to build capacity in environmental and resource economics in the region, including collaborations with think tanks, to influence policy with evidence.
