Uptake of Climate Change Adaptation research results in Africa (CLARE)
Namibia is one of the countries that will be particularly vulnerable to the impacts of global warming above 1.5 °C because it is already a hot, dry and water-stressed country that is prone to extreme environmental conditions. The 1.5 °C temperature increase will not only lead to distinct climatic conditions but will worsen already existing vulnerabilities hence there is a need for the country to implements extensive, adaptive and transformative responses the 1.5°C threshold. It is against this background that the Desert Research Foundation of Namibia (DRFN) and its project partners, The University of Namibia (UNAM) and Reos Partners are implementing the Uptake of Climate Change Adaptation research results in Africa (CLARE) project. The CLARE project aims to create awareness on the 1.5 °C climate change projections made for Namibia by creating urgency and agency on climate action through collective action, which will be achieved through the vertical and horizontal integration of key actors from the national, regional and local levels.. The project builds onto the research results from the Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions project (ASSAR) which was co-implemented by the Desert Research Foundation of Namibia (DRFN) and the University of Namibia (UNAM) from 2014-2018. The CLARE project is funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and will run for a duration of 16 months from 1 April 2020 to 31 July 2021.
