Dialogues for Solution
Adaptation and Resilience Building, River Basins and Cryosphere, HI-AWARE
Cape Town International Convention Centre, Cape Town, South Africa
19 June 2018 to
21 June 2018
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) will participate in the Fifth Adaptation Futures 2018 in Cape Town, on 19–21 June 2018. Building on the legacy and key messages that emerged from the previous conferences, the event will aim to facilitate dialogues for solutions between key actors from diverse perspectives and regions.
Together with GRID-Arendal and UN Environment, ICIMOD will co-organize Mountain Adaptation Solutions Café on 21 June. In a world café format, the session will focus on how solutions can be structured and/or developed to be scaled up across mountain regions.
Under the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA) consortium, the Himalayan Adaptation, Water and Resilience (HI-AWARE) Research initiative will participate in a number of sessions highlighting the culmination of research over the past five years. Focusing on themes of climate change, adaptation, and resilience building, HI-AWARE is set to take part in a number of panel discussions on the complexities of climate change faced by vulnerable communities residing in the Indus, Ganges, Gandaki, and Teesta river basins. In addition to sharing results on bio-physical scenarios that will impact climate trends in the HKH, HI-AWARE will also emphasize value addition, exploring how knowledge co-production and research-into-use can interact to result in research findings with contextual relevance in a rapidly changing South Asia.
Additionally, ICIMOD experts will present and facilitate sessions on adaptation and development, South- South and South-North knowledge and learning, interaction of climate adaptation with 21st century challenges, modes of collaboration, knowledge co-production and research into use, financing of adaptation and climate resilient development, and learning by doing.
