Theatre of the Oppressed is a powerful tool for bringing alternative voices into the climate change arena. Brendon Bosworth and Daniel Morchain write about theatre's potential to humanise climate change and promote solutions that put people first.
ASSAR has been examining the conditioning factors surrounding adaptation action in four of the world’s semi-arid regions, with a specific focus on barriers and enablers to the uptake and success of adaptation. Here is what we found.
In January 2018, ASSAR – one of the ACDI’s largest and most collaborative research projects – drew to an official close.Involving 17 organisations and over 150 researchers and practitioners working in the semi-arid regions of six countries in Africa, and India, this five-year project used transdisciplinary scientific research, capacity building and stakeholder engagement to improve the understanding of the barriers and enablers to effective and sustained adaptation.
In this highly reflective and content-rich article, Lucia Scodanibbio summarises (as much as a single article can) ASSAR’s insights, achievements, challenges and learnings. She also describes her personal experience of managing such a multi-faceted and complex project.
