Science-practice interactions for effective climate change adaptation: identifying new approaches for collaboration between Europe and low-income countries
Bonn: CIRCLE-2, German Aerospace Centre – Project Management Agency, German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)
European countries have committed to support vulnerable countries to adapt to the effects of climate change. Successful adaptation requires context-specific data, analysis and knowledge. Research can take an important role in the provision of this knowledge and analysis, yet in practice, the potential of science-practice interaction is still underdeveloped. With research funds on climate change adaptation expected to increase considerably in the coming years, it is important to explore ways of effective spending with regard to adaptation related knowledge needs in low-income countries.
The policy brief summarizes the key findings and recommendations of an international expert workshop organized by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), CIRCLE-2 (Climate Impact Research & Response Coordination for a Larger Europe), and the German Aerospace Centre – Project Management Agency (PT-DLR).
