The Global Adaptation Atlas, an initiative of Resources for the Future’s Center for Climate and Electricity Policy, aims to enable a global community of scientists, policymakers, planners, donors and citizens to visualize what impacts are likely to affect their regions, what responses are underway, and what gaps need to be filled.
The project strives to connect data providers (including the scientific and technical community) with data users (local communities, water and sanitation operators, the general public) in order to mitigate the adverse effects of natural disasters.
This grant will support the preparation of a concept paper to identify the potential of ICTs to prepare women farmers to adapt to and manage climate change.
Innovative Knowledge Sharing for Climate Change Adaptation in Africa. AfricaAdapt is an independent bilingual network (French/English) focused exclusively on Africa.
