Project

Significant gaps remain in our knowledge about the real and potential consequences of climate risks based on a population’s level of vulnerability; the effectiveness of monitoring, warning, and emergency response systems; and relevant indicators for gauging the effectiveness of adaptation policies on health. Improving access to the available knowledge on vulnerability to climate change remains a challenge in Tafilalet, Morocco, Niamey, Niger, as well as in the province of Québec, Canada.
Region(s): North of Sahara, North and Central America, South of Sahara, Morocco, Niger, Canada
Total Funding: CA$ 2,500,000.00

Project

The Caribbean is one of the most vulnerable regions in the world to the impacts of climate change.
Region(s): West Indies, North and Central America, Canada, Barbados
Total Funding: CA$ 2,500,000.00

Project

To date, projections of future climate change have been based on averaged temperatures over decades. But at local and regional levels, climate variability and the occurrence of extreme events affect communities the most. There is a lack of knowledge on how climate change is affecting climate variability and extreme events in rural areas of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and the Canadian prairies.
Region(s): North and Central America, South America, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Canada
Total Funding: CA$ 2,500,000.00

Project

Indigenous people are among the most directly affected by climate change. Yet, there is limited understanding of the health dimensions of climate change and opportunities for adaptation among indigenous populations.
Region(s): Peru, South of Sahara, North and Central America, Uganda, Canada
Total Funding: CA$ 2,500,000.00

Project

For megacities located in low-lying coastal areas, the threat of climate change is an added stressor to rapid population growth, as well as economic, social, health and cultural challenges
Topic(s): COASTAL CITIES
Region(s): Thailand, Canada, Nigeria
