Abstract: About CCAA -- The Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) research and capacity development program was launched in 2006 and is jointly funded by Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID). It is hosted and managed by IDRC from headquarters in Ottawa and three regional offices in Africa. Our original mandate is for 5 years of programming activity, gradually devolving to African institutions, with initial funding of CAD 15 million from IDRC and GBP 24 million from DFID. We aim to improve the capacity of African countries to adapt to climate change in ways that benefit the most vulnerable. The program works to establish a self-sustaining African body of expertise on adaptation that responds to needs defined by African communities, decisionmakers, and institutions.
