Workshop on Climate Change and Poverty
The GECHS project recently organized a workshop on Climate Change and Poverty. The objective of this workshop was to discuss climate-poverty links relevant to mainstreaming adaptation to climate change into official development assistance. Participants from development agencies and academia shared experiences and information needs, including the challenges of linking scientific research on vulnerability with development projects aimed at reducing poverty. The workhop was held from 9-10 January 2006 in Oslo, Norway. It was organized by GECHS Associates Siri Eriksen and Richard Klein, with support from Norad.
