Cross collaborative research supporting climate change adaptation

12 April 2017

The Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR) project aims to produce future-focused and relevant local knowledge to support climate change adaptation in semi-arid regions and improve the likelihoods of local people. The ASSAR consortium is a partnership between five lead institutions and 12 partner organisations. The project sits within the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA) programme that is funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) from 2012 - 2018.
