Adaptation Interventions and their Effect on Vulnerability in Developing Countries
Eriksen, S., Schipper, L., Scoville-Simonds, M., Vincent, K., Adam, H.N., Brooks, N., Harding, B., Khatri, D., Lenaerts, L., Liverman, D., Mills-Novoa, M., Mosberg, M., Movik, S., Muok, B., Nightingale, A., Ojha, H., Sygna, L., Taylor, M., Vogel, C., West, J.J. 2021. Adaptation interventions and their effect on vulnerability in developing countries: Help, hindrance or irrelevance? World Development.
This paper was a key motivation for forming C-Hub in order to support adapatation that puts marginalised groups at the center in order to more effectively contribute to vulnerability reduction. You can watch a presentation of the paper at a TSITICA seminar in May 2021: In case you missed it: Adaptation interventions and their effect on vulnerability in developing countries: Help, hindrance or irrelevance?

Recording - Seminar
A Current Seminar on Climate and Security
Norway now has a seat on the UN Security Council, and is therefore in a unique position to influence the world community’s measures in this area.
Watch the exciting dialogue with Halvard Buhaug of Prio, Kristin Halvorsen of CICERO, Siri Eriksen of NMBU, and Hans Olav Ibrekk (states secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs), direct from the security council sessions on climate change and conflict.

Program ClimBeR: Building Systemic Resilience Against Climate Variability and Extremes
CGIAR’s new initiative, Building Systemic Resilience Against Climate Variability and Extremes (ClimBeR), focuses on adaptive transformation – which is tackling the root causes of vulnerability – instead of the immediate causes of vulnerability. ClimBeR will allow researchers and food system stakeholders to integrate three domains that are key to long-term success: social equity, environmental quality and protection, and technical aspects. In this way, CGIAR aims to spark large-scale, lasting and positive change for millions of smallholder farmers facing their biggest-ever challenge: the climate crisis.Find more information on the following link: How CGIAR will help 30 million smallholder farmers adapt to climate change by 2030 – CGIAR
TSITICA – Transforming Social Inequalities Through Inclusive Climate Action
TSITICA project studies how climate change adaptation can be socially transformative, aiming to inspire poverty and inequality reduction in Ghana, Kenya and South Africa.

Act4Food Act4Change is a collective gathers young people from around the world to urge all people, particularly governments, businesses, UN agencies and young people themselves to focus on their personal action as a contribution to system change.

UNFCC Nairobi Work Programme
UNFCCC’s Knowledge-To-Action Hub aims to close knowledge gaps to advance transformative adaptation and resilience in a changing climate.
“The Nairobi Work Programme (NWP) assists all Parties, in particular developing countries, including the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS), in (i) improving their understanding and assessment of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation; and (ii) making informed decisions on practical adaptation actions and measures to respond to climate change on a sound scientific, technical and socioeconomic basis, taking into account current and future climate change and variability”.

Least Developed Countries Group (LDC) – Climate Change
The Least Developed Countries form a group of 46 countries striving for climate justice as research continuously demonstrates how income poor countries are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts while contributing least to the global climate change problem. They have several initiatives such as the LDC Initiative for Effective Adaptation and Resilience (LIFE-AR), LDC Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Initiative for Sustainable Development (LDC REEEI) and LDCs Universities Consortium on Climate Change (LUCCC).
