Building a collaborative platform for climate change: an action research approach

As climate change has risen on the development agenda, so has the demand for research to understand the effects it will have on society and what can be done by governments, businesses, communities and households to deal with its impacts. The rapid increase in development assistance funding for climate change has brought with it opportunities to scale up work on development and poverty reduction. But there is also a danger that adaptation interventions will not be based on sound research, or that research will not be relevant or accessible to the developing countries it is meant to serve.
