Under the theme “Dialogues for impact - Integrating SDGs, climate policy and climate action in developing regions”, CARIAA’s Third Annual Learning Review (ALR3) will be organised 3-6 May 2017 in Kathmandu, Nepal, around understanding how the research emerging out of CARIAA can help bring the Sustainable Development Goals into conversation with National Adaptation Planning processes. Based on the abstracts that we received from CARIAA researchers, four thematic sessions have been identified, each corresponding to one of the SDGs: Mobility (as a subset of SDG 10: Reduced inequality), Water Security (SDG 6); Gender Equality (SDG 5), and Urgent Action to Combat Climate Change (SDG 13).
With over 75 participants, this meeting promises to be a pivotal one as we collectively come to grips with our potential contribution to climate change adaptation policy and practice. Most importantly, we hope to work together so that in the end we don't just have great research in CARIAA, but that this research makes a real impact in hotspot regions, where appropriate policy and practice is most needed. The ALR3 is geared toward stimulating conversations between researchers and Research-into-Use specialists from across CARIAA and beyond to move toward this goal.
The facilitators of ALR3, Pete Cranston and Isobel McConnan, have initiated a blog series on FacilitationAnywhere about CARIAA and the facilitation process of this special learning event. Check this out!
