ASSAR participants at Adaptation Futures 2018

Adaptation Futures will showcase ASSAR research results touching on themes that range from the effectiveness of climate services, to urban migrants' vulnerability; from the link between invasive species and climate change, to how to effectively collaborate between researchers and practitioners; from the use of participatory scenarios to the governance of water and natural resources. Join us for interactive campfire discussions, a theatre play or a chat around one of our posters. Please see the table below for more details.
