There are a lot of uncertainties in the future – how extreme weather and long-term climates might shift in a location to what kinds of socio-economic development choices might be made that could worsen or improve inequality, poverty and environmental degradation. These sources of risk combine to cause different impacts and consequences for people, sectors and ecosystems.
We commission, manage and undertake local and regional research-into-use policy and planning projects at the intersection of society and sustainable livelihoods, low carbon development and renewable energy, and ecological conservation to explore new approaches to climate challenges.
Through this, the INTASAVE-CARIBSAVE Group champions innovation. We connect countries, communities and organisations with the innovative thinking and policy tools necessary to learn, develop and implement multiple, resilient strategies to managing climate risk across South-South regions
How we do this:
By having a global perspective coupled with local experience, the INTASAVE-CARIBSAVE group is a leader in developing new approaches across science, policy and practice to support decision makers and communities in building resilience through participatory learning and iterative adaptation processes. We work on global, regional, national, subnational, community and sector levels in promoting climate resilience policies and action in socio-economic development. Flexible, robust, adaptive and sustainable – resilient – approaches are needed to help people and systems manage climate stresses and shocks, and shift strategies to respond to the potential challenges and benefits of climate change.
