As a research support and capacity development program, the CCAA will generate significant new knowledge resources to contribute to climate change adaptation in Africa. Given the practical orientation of CCAA's mission and goal – supporting climate change adaptation among the most vulnerable peoples in Africa - the emphasis will be on active engagement in knowledge generation and sharing processes, in support of active use of knowledge. This knowledge sharing framework sets out the broad parameter and scope of activities to ensure CCAA-generated knowledge is effectively managed and shared with user groups that can best apply it to the benefit of Africa's most vulnerable, the program's main beneficiaries.
The sharing of knowledge within, across and beyond CCAA funded projects will be achieved through communications and networking activities. This document elaborates on CCAA's strategies and operational support for knowledge sharing.
