Experiences in AFRICA
|PICOTEAM supports the Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) Programme in Participatory Action Research||In 2009 PICOTEAM was engaged by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) to support Researchers on the application of Participatory Action Research / Action Research (PAR/AR) on the Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) programme as part of a mentoring team composed of experienced PAR/AR practitioners from Zimbabwe, Senegal, Cameroon, Algeria and Indonesia. The mentoring team has put together a PAR/AR reference guide that focuses on the application of PAR/AR on climate change adaptation in Africa. The reference guide borrowed heavily on PICOTEAM members’ experiences in the development of PAR/AR concepts under the African Highlands Initiative (AHI).
Currently, in 2011, PICOTEAM supports the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Food Agriculture and Natural Resources Directorate to develop a proposal for the development of a regional Climate Change programme. The proposal was submitted and accepted for funding by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The proposed project will facilitate the development of a Climate Change Programme (CCP) at the SADC secretariat.
