    Document

    admin | 2010-01-01 | 1.3 MB | details

    This meeting was the first between the seven African Adaptation Research Centres (AARC) initiative projects supported through the Government of Canada’s Fast-Start Climate Finance funding. The meeting served to focus research and capacity building plans and activities more carefully based on peer and expert feedback from a wide range of experts on climate change adaptation in Africa. Specific actions that are going to be taken as a result of this meeting include: 1. An end of project peer-review publication of case studies on economic analysis of adaptation options; 2. Refined communication strategies for each of the projects to specify target audiences and how research will inform policy; 3. The integration of the seven AARC projects into the AfricaAdapt network (www.africa-adapt.net) and the IDRC supported research to policy platform (being led by the Conseil Ouest et Centre Africain pour la Recherche et le Développement Agricoles - CORAF); 4. The refinement of how projects are measuring adaptation to develop better business cases for climate finance; 5. A communications strategy for AARC partners’ involvement in COP-17 in Durban.

    Document

    jouwertvangeene | 2010-01-01 | 2.1 MB | details

    Wageningen-UR (Alterra and the Centre for Development Innovation) composed this training manual based on the training material developed for the first training on ‘Climate Change in Agriculture and Natural Resources Management’ held in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia from 15-26 June 2009. The Training was organised in cooperation with the Horn of Africa Regional Environment Centre and Network (HoA-REC/N), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) and the Association for Strengthening Agricultural Research in Eastern and Central Africa (ASARECA). The training helps the participants to understand better the potential impact of future climate change including the increased variability and uncertainty and to combine this knowledge with the planned and on-going activities at national, regional and local scale in view of sustainable development. The Manual is developed for future trainers providing them a training set-up and guidance for implementation. We welcome feedback from other users, university lecturers or course developers. aining material will be available on a CD-rom on request. This publication is available through: http://portals.wi.wur.nl/files/docs/file/climate%20change/TrainingManual2009report%201991-fin.pdf Training material will be available on a CD-rom on request.
