disaster risk reductionDr Katharine Vincent and Ms Tracy Cull are producing synthesis papers from the outputs of the Africa Climate Change Fellowship Program (ACCFP). The ACCFP promotes innovative adaptation research in Africa through pairing researchers with mentors to implement individually-designed projects. The latest round called for proposals under the themes of climate change and disaster risk, climate change and food security and climate change and health. One synthesis paper will be produced for each of these themes, based on the findings from the individual research projects.
