The Adaptation Research Alliance believes that we need a new paradigm of action-orientated research to inform effective adaptation to reduce the risks from climate change, particularly for countries and communities that are most vulnerable – at the scale and urgency demanded by the science.
We generate investment and opportunities for action research between the funders, researchers, and practitioners that make up our membership. By bringing together international expertise, we enable inclusive research partnerships and collaborations that lead to effective innovations for those at the frontlines of climate change. Action-oriented research should be driven by user needs, co-produced with local experts, and equitable in practice. As an advocate, facilitator, and catalyst for this approach, we deliver resources to those adapting to a future with a new climate.
