Climate Change Adaptation Policy Processes

Two FAC members (Blessings Chinsinga and Lydia Ndirangu) are involved in collaborative research on “Linking African Researchers with Adaptation Policy Spaces”. This project aims to increase the ability of partners in Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) programme in East Africa to understand climate change adaptation policy processes at local and national scales.

Drawing on the experience of the Participatory Adaptation Research (PAR) carried out under the CCAA programme, the project is conducting policy focused case studies aimed at increasing research-policy linkages of adaptation research in participating countries (Kenya, Malawi and Tanzania).

Given progress with field work during the current period, feedback workshops (within the two countries at district and national level) plus the team planning event for the remainder of the 2009-10 financial year will now take place in the next period.
