The Cities and Climate Change Initiative will support high quality, demand driven, policy relevant action research that engages local authorities, communities, and the private sector. Research will help to meet the adaptation deficit in small to medium sized cities or well defined subdivisions of large cities where demographic pressure and environmental stresses are particularly acute. Proposed solutions should address climate risk and uncertainty, and inspire innovation in adaptation strategies and technologies.
The proposed research must take place in one or more of the following countries: Bangladesh, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Kenya, Mali, Namibia, Nepal, Pakistan, Senegal, South Africa, Tajikistan, Tanzania, and Uganda.
