CLARE scoping study : understanding African decision-makers’ needs for research and evidence
This is a detailed scoping study for the Climate and Resilience (CLARE) framework in advance of programming agendas and funding. Additional scoping studies are recommended to better define research needs prior to the research call, including a component on mapping the political and decision-making landscape, as well as partnering with local institutions that have in-depth knowledge. A clear demand-related criterion for the projects that will be funded is emphasized as necessary. Climate change priorities are defined at the country level, which then inform subcontinental and continental priorities. For maximum policy impact, the CLARE programme should primarily target the country-level.
