In announcing the awards, the presidents at the four organizations commented:

"Africa, the Arctic, and other vulnerable regions face an urgent need to adapt to such effects as rising sea levels, extreme weather events, drought and desertification," says IDRC President David M. Malone. "This initiative will help determine how vulnerable populations in Canada and in developing countries can best cope with changes to their health, environments, and livelihoods."

"Aboriginal peoples are particularly at risk, and this initiative offers an opportunity for researchers to combine Western scientific methods with traditional indigenous knowledge," says CIHR President Alain Beaudet. "Research is urgently needed to help these vulnerable populations adapt and even improve their lives in the face of climate change."

"SSHRC-funded researchers have helped build a strong foundation of Canadian innovation and expertise on the human dimension of climate change," says SSHRC President Chad Gaffield. "This international collaboration will enable us to develop new knowledge and capabilities in key areas, as well as to enhance the contributions of social sciences and humanities research to meeting the needs of Canadian and developing communities in the process of adaptation to a changing environment."

"The knowledge and expertise of NSERC-funded researchers will play a key role in finding solutions to the environmental changes that affect the most vulnerable communities in Canada and around the world," says NSERC President Suzanne Fortier. "By collaborating on an international scale, these researchers will be able to strengthen effor
