Highlights from the Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR) project

This publication, available on the Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR) website, features highlights from the ASSAR project.

Working in the semi-arid regions of Africa and India, the five-year (2014-2018), multi-institutional and multi-scale ASSAR project combined interdisciplinary scientific research, capacity building, and stakeholder engagement to improve understandings of the barriers and enablers to effective climate adaptation. ASSAR’s work centered on informing climate adaptation policy and practice in ways that advance the agency and long-term wellbeing of the most vulnerable.

ASSAR was a project within the CARIAA (Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia) programme, funded by IDRC and DFID.
