Kulima director in Kathmandu for CARIAA Annual Learning Review

DECCMA stand at ALR 2016Dr Katharine Vincent is in Kathmandu this week to participate in the 2017 Annual Learning Review for the Collaborative Adaptation Research in Africa and Asia programme. The meeting brings together researchers from the four CARIAA programmes that are investigating adaptation in different hotspots: HI-AWARE (snowpack river basins), ASSAR (semi-arid regions), PRISE (semi-arid economies) and DECCMA (deltas). The purpose is to discuss emerging findings and highlight opportunities to inform adaptation policy and practice. Katharine will also participate in a pre-meeting with her Research-into-Use counterparts to ensure cross-project learning and maximise impact throughout the remainder of the programme.

DECCMA is one project within the Collaborative Adaptation Research in Africa and Asia programme. It focuses on the extent to which, and circumstances under which, migration is, and may be, used as an adaptation in three deltas: the Ganges-Meghna-Brahmaputra, the Mahanadi, and the Volta. Kulima's involvement is to ensure gender is integrated throughout the project, and to play a role in ensuring that research findings are effectively communicated beyond an academic audience. The meeting will bring together all consortium partners to assess progress and share information on emerging findings, as well as offer targeted training for next steps.

CARIAA workshopDr Katharine Vincent is currently in Addis Ababa to participate in a workshop under the Collaborative Adaptation Research in Africa and Asia (CARIAA) programme. One of the core aims of CARIAA is to promote uptake of adaptation research by stakeholders in policy and practice, and so it is essential to monitor and evaluate the progress towards this. DECCMA and the three other projects within CARIAA are meeting, under the leadership of Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR). The purpose is to develop a methodology to identify, understand, describe and document the change that is resulting from CARIAA research, capacity building and stakeholder engagement activities. The specific focus is on "stories of change" and how to build an innovative and participatory element into identifying, tracking and documenting stories of change on adaptation within the CARIAA projects.
