Adaptation Research Alliance

As part of the UK COP 26 Presidency Adaptation & Resilience campaign, the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO) is working with partners to develop an international Adaptation Research Alliance (ARA) for launch at COP 26. This global collaborative effort will seek to catalyse increased investment and capacity for action-orientated research that support effective adaptation to climate change – primarily in developing countries – at the scale and urgency demanded by the science.

Following the soft launch at the Gobeshona Global Conference, a nine-month development will ensure that partners conduct the groundwork necessary for launching an ambitious, transformative, and credible ARA at COP26. WASP is a key partner in this endeavour.
