Welcome to the CCW webspace.

Welcome to the Climate Change, ICTS and Water (CCW) workshop webspace which will be used for the upcoming workshop, hosted by the Association For Progressive Communications (APC) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), to be held in Johannesburg, July 7th-July 10th 2011.

This workshop is part of a new strategic area for the IDRC – the IDRC Climate Change and Water (CCW) Program – that aims to support applied policy-relevant research to help people adapt to the water-related impacts of climate change.

The workshop will involve three days of presentations and intensive discussions with
expert participants from around the world, as well as a half-day site visit to a project
in the Johannesburg area.

As part of its strategy, IDRC and APC have commissioned a series of regional
scoping studies covering Africa, Asia and Latin America
(which you can access by clicking on the link) to identify key research priorities and knowledge gaps. This work has started and its findings will also be shared at the stakeholder workshop.

Some 30 participants will be attending the workshop, and we expect the discussions
to be invigorating and challenging for all those engaged in the field, as well as an
important opportunity to network and to make new cross-sectoral and inter-regional

Information about the workshop agenda, logistics, and other background information, can be found through the menu items at the top of this page.

We look forward to welcoming you in Johannesburg!

    The workshop has been going quite well. The field visit to the dam went off very well with lots of participants getting in engaged discussions with the dam staff, and sharing their respective insights.

    Right now, participants are using creative tools to find innovative solutions using arts and crafts. It should make for some interesting photos!
