Kulima director participating in meeting of the CARIAA Gender and Equity Working Group

Dr Katharine Vincent is in Dubai this week to participate in a meeting of the Collaborative Adaptation Research in Africa and Asia programme Gender and Equity Working Group. 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 apply the Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) methodology to a variety of case studies from across Africa and Asia to determine what enables women's adaptive capacity. This will result in a synthesis paper, due in late 2018.

Dr Katharine Vincent is in the UK this week to participate in a writeshop. The writeshop is being held under the Deltas, Vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration and Adaptation (DECCMA) project under the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA). Hosted by DECCMA lead, the University of Southampton, the writeshop convenes team members from the Northern, Ghana, India and Bangladesh teams to synthesise our findings on climate change, migration and adaptation in deltas based on research undertaken during the 4.5 year lifespan of the project.
