International research initiative on adaptation to climate change announces research awards
Date:6/3/2011

Ottawa, Canada, June 2, 2011 The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) together with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) today announce that five research teams have been awarded a total of $12.5 million dollars under the International Research Initiative on Adaptation to Climate Change (IRIACC).

Each team will receive $2.5 million over five years to study how best to protect people, communities and vital economic sectors, like agriculture and tourism, that are most at risk from the effects of climate change. Two teams will focus specifically on vulnerable indigenous populations. Together, the research projects, which will take place in Canada and in developing countries across four continents, aim to address an important gap in our climate change knowledge, namely, how to anticipate, manage, and reduce climate risk vulnerability through adaptation.

The five successful research teams were selected through a rigorous peer-review process. Their projects and respective team leads are:

Coastal Cities at Risk: Building Adaptive Capacity for Managing Climate Change in Coastal Megacities
Anond Snidvongs, Chulalongkorn University and Southeast Asia START Regional Research Center, Thailand
Gordon McBean, University of Western Ontario, Canada

Adapting to Climate Change: Protecting Water Resources in West Africa and Canada
Driss Ouazar, Universit Mohammed V Agdal, Maroc
Taha Ouarda, Institut national de la recherche scientifique, Canada

Partnership for Canada-Caribbean Community Climate Change Adaptation
Murray Simpson, the CARIBSAVE Partnership, Barbados
Daniel Scott, University of Waterloo, Canada
