Our ongoing research on adaptation solutions will be showcased in an event hosted at ICIMOD on the the 29th of June. Titled 'Science-Policy Roundtable on Climate Change Adaptation', the event will not only focus on promoting regional cooperation between member countries in the region, but also emphasize on the demands of communities specifically women, and building resilience to climate change.
Taking examples from our pilot interventions across our study sites, we would be sharing information on our Eco-San toilet intervention in West Champaran, Bihar, and details of Solar Pumping Irrigation Systems couldples with Climate Smart Agriculture Packages for improving of farm pdrocutivity from Potohar, Pakistan. Along with this, information regarding Climate and Flood Resilient (CFR) housing from Bangladesh would also be shared.
The objective of the roundatble is to not only share information that has been generated by initiatives (including HI-AWARE), but also discussing of future research areas and capacity needs to which ICIMOD may contribute through its regional programmes. This will mark the first of many planned policy engagements at sub-national level in the ICIMOD member countries.
A tentative programme schedule and the concept note can both be downloaded from here.
