Southern Voices on Adaptation
The current Southern Voices on Adaptation project – initiated in 2014 – supports 14 partner networks from Asia, Africa and Latin America in developing and testing the Joint Principles for Adaptation (JPA) as a benchmark for good national adaptation policies.
Our belief is that having agreed joint principles for adaptation will help national stakeholders in a country to unite their efforts to confront threats posed by climate change, particularly for the most vulnerable people.
CARE Denmark is the lead agency in a consortium of Danish NGOs which provide capacity building and flexible funding to Southern climate policy networks in the project to promote pro-poor climate policies locally and globally. From 2011-14 the Southern Voices of Climate Change supported some 20 partner networks and also included CAN-International and IIED in the Consortium.
