Report From the adaptation study team to IDRC
The purpose of this report is to present the results from a strategic gap analysis the Institute for Social and Environmental Transition (ISET) and other members of the Adaptation Study Team have undertaken for the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the Department for International Development (DFID) to identify areas where a strategically targeted research and capacity building programme could support adaptation to climate change.
Consultations conducted across Asia highlighted points of convergence and divergence between regions regarding issues of relevance for research on adaptation to climate change. In virtually all regions participants highlighted the need for (1) improved understanding of climate impacts including the factors influencing the vulnerability of different populations; (2) capacity building of key stakeholders at local and national levels; (3) economic evaluation of interventions designed to support adaptation; (4) access and equity; (5) political viability; and (6) governance and the interaction across scales and sectors of government organizations.
