This report presents the findings of a consultation exercise on climate change and development in India. The specific objectives of the consultation, which this report attempts to address, are:
- To establish what Indian stakeholders regard as the most urgent research needs in relation to climate change and its implications for poverty reduction and sustainable development.
- To identify what research other funders have supported, or are supporting in India, as well as where there are gaps or opportunities for co-financing and DFID value-added involvement.
- To provide a clear definition of the researchable problems for future DFID research programmes.
Methods used included a literature review, consultations with sectoral experts, and an in-country workshop.
