International Joint Initiative for Research on Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation
The “International Joint Initiative for Research on Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation” represents a collaboration between research funders from Brazil, Germany, Norway, South Africa, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States, led by Canada to leverage international expertise to tackle the global challenges caused by climate change.
The initiative aims to further the design and implementation of co-produced adaptation and mitigation strategies for vulnerable groups – those groups currently most impacted by the effects of climate change, owing to both physical and socioeconomic vulnerability. Developing strategies to improve resilience to climate change requires an interdisciplinary approach involving expertise across disciplines, including the natural sciences, engineering, health sciences, social sciences and humanities, and across sectors, including academia, government, not-for-profit, community and private industry.
