CARIAA logoKulima is proud to be part of one of the four consortia announced this week as successful under the IDRC– and DFID-funded Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA). CARIAA aims to improve the resilience of poor people to climate change in particular "hot spot" environments, namely semi-arid regions, glacier and snow pack-dependent river basins, and deltas. Deltas, Vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration as an Adaptation (DECCMA) is led by the University of Southampton (UK), Institute of Water and Flood Management at Bangadesh University of Technology and Engineering, Jadavpur University (India), National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Studies (Egypt) and the University of Ghana. Kulima will be integrating a gender perspective into the research agenda and policy engagement process, and developing adaptation funding proposals based on empirical project findings.
