Climate Change Adaptation Practice in Semi-Arid Regions: Views and Insights by Practitioners



The Research into Use (RiU) element of the research project Adaptation at Scale in SemiArid Regions (ASSAR)  aims to ensure that ASSAR’s research outputs and findings are taken-up in adaptation practice and policy spheres across semi-arid regions. For that purpose, the ASSAR  consortia is keen to engage with practitioners early in the research process to reflect their views in the research design and in the definition of research questions. It is recognised that this step is key to enhance the likelihood of research uptake and creates interest and ownership in the research process by practitioners.
