Climate Learning and Advocacy for Resilience (CLAR)
Climate resilience is imperative to successfully address the injustices of poverty. Anticipating and responding to increasingly severe and uncertain climate impacts, in the context of all development and humanitarian work, is essential – to safeguard and improve the quality of people’s lives, to enhance vulnerable people’s opportunities and the environments they live in, and to consolidate livelihood gains.
The Climate Learning and Advocacy for Resilience (CLAR) programme aims to strengthen learning, evidence, and knowledge brokering among programmes and policy processes that are integrating climate resilience. To do this, CLAR works with a range of partners in Ghana, Mali, Niger, Chad (West Africa); Ethiopia, Mozambique, Tanzania and Uganda (East and Southern Africa); and Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal and Vietnam (Asia). CLAR aims to contribute to the global agenda on climate resilience in practice and policy by: developing new learning and evidence from vulnerable contexts; influencing adaptation finance and National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes; and facilitating multi-stakeholder learning, both within and beyond CARE programmes.
