New microsites are up! Six research teams unveil their work on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in South Asia

We are excited to announce that six research projects supported by START and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) have been completed and are on display through a series of microsites. Within the sites, you can explore different facets of the projects by clicking on modules to access project reports, policy briefs, academic papers, case studies, workshops and trainings, blog pieces, films, and posters.

Our South Asia grants program provides the means for scientists from different backgrounds and levels of career development to come together to engage in collaborative, transdisciplinary research. Together the scientists can thoroughly investigate the intstitutions and stakeholders of disaster-prone regions across South Asia in order to identify the policies that are needed for resilient development. The six teams that participated in this program come from environmental and social development organizations in Nepal, Pakistan, and India. Their projects range from developing disaster risk management plans to identifying infrastructural needs and investigating ways to strengthen regional institutions.
