Collaboration

A consortium of consortia

HI-AWARE, one of the four consortia of the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA), is conducting high caliber research and pilot activities, capacity building and policy engagement on climate resilience and adaptation in the mountains and flood plains of the Indus, Ganges, and Brahmaputra river basins.

Its overall goal is to contribute to enhanced climate resilience and adaptive capacities of the poor and vulnerable women, men, and children living in these river basins by leveraging research and pilot outcomes to influence policy and practice to improve their livelihoods.

HI-AWARE is implementing its three Work Packages – Knowledge Generation, Research into Use, and Strengthening Expertise – in 12 sites in the Indus, Upper Ganga, Gandaki and Teesta river basins and beyond.
