IDRC and DFID Call for Concept Notes on Climate Change Adaptation: The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in partnership with the Department for International Development (DFID) is funding a new program on climate change adaptation called ‘The Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia’ (CARIAA) which will run until 2019.

The Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative for Africa and Asia (CARIAA) aims to build the resilience of vulnerable populations and their livelihoods in these three hot spots in Africa and Asia by supporting collaborative research to inform adaptation policy and practice.

To reach as many vulnerable poor people as possible, CARIAA will focus on the following three hot spots:

  • Semi-arid regions of Africa and part of South and Central Asia where a large number of people depend on  climate-sensitive livelihoods such as agriculture and pastoralism;
  • Deltas of South Asia and Africa supporting large populations whose livelihoods (e.g.  agriculture and fishing) and place of residence (e.g. urban floodplains, low-lying rural areas) are particularly vulnerable to climate change; and
  • Glacier and snowpack dependent river basins significantly affected by climate change, as for example in the highly populated Himalayan floodplains where water quantity and quality is  likely to be significantly affected by climate change.

The CARIAA program will support three research consortia, one for each hot spot. 

For the purposes of CARIAA, a consortium is defined as  a grouping of organizations (“members”) participating in the design and delivery of a common research program on climate change adaptation focused on a specific vulnerability ‘hot spot’

The deadline to submit concept notes is 4 April.
