Innovative Knowledge Sharing for Climate Change Adaptation in Africa. AfricaAdapt is an independent bilingual network (French/English) focused exclusively on Africa.
This project is a collaborative effort on the part of six institutions in three countries (India, Nepal and the United States) under the leadership of the Institute for Social and Environmental Transition – Nepal (ISET – Nepal). Researchers and communities will develop intervention strategies based on income diversification, environmental management and multi-purpose communication systems.
This project aims to provide a systematic, rigorous analysis of the potential of ICTs to help prepare for and adapt to climate change in developing regions. The material produced will be compiled in an edited volume, a series of strategy briefings and a final policy paper.
