With the goal of significantly improving the capacity of African populations and organisations to adapt to climate change in ways that benefit the most vulnerable, the Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) research and capacity development programme was launched in 2006 as a jointly funded initiative of the Canadian International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
The final evaluation of the CCAA programme was conducted from September 2011 to May 2012 by a team of four experts with complementary expertise and experience, with the objectives to (i) evaluate the extent to which CCAA achieved its programme goal and objectives, the results of the programme, and the effectiveness of the programme management and governance; and (ii) to distil lessons about the specific approach taken by CCAA to build capacity and support research, learning and knowledge sharing on adaptation to climate change. The report presents the evaluation, and makes key advice and recommendations for future research.
