Six case studies have been developed to provide examples of how some of the impact types discussed in the UKCDR report, ‘UK-funded research on climate change and international development’, have been delivered in practice over the last 5 years. They have been selected to represent a range of impact types, as well as a variety of project types, geographical and thematic foci, and research funders.

All six case studies relate to research with a significant international development focus that is (at least partially) UK ODA-funded and/or Wellcome-funded. They have been selected to include a range of focuses across climate change mitigation, adaptation and resilience and climate science. The case studies are:

  • Between a rock and a wet place – Exploring historical trajectories of exposure, governance and tenure to build resilience to multiple hazards in SIDS
  • Climate Science for Service Partnerships (CSSP) Brazil
  • Future Climate for Africa: Future Resilience for African Cities and Lands (FRACTAL)
  • Health and climate change (Sustainable and Healthy Food Systems (SHEFS) and CLEAN-Air (Africa))
  • International Climate Finance – Tools for informing decision making (2050 calculator and Ecosystem Service Valuation Database (ESVD))
  • Patterns of resilience among young people in a community affected by drought – Historical and contextual perspectives
