Climate change and development: Results from a 2005 consultation on key researchable issues and priorities that have evolved since
From January to May 2005, IIED conducted a consultation for the UK Department for International Development. Its aim was to identify priority research and policy issues relating to climate change and development for the most vulnerable countries and communities in different regions in the South. This paper describes the results from this research consultation, with particular focus on the water sector. It then describes changes since 2005 reflecting both the direction that research and policy work in the climate change arena has taken, and an assessment by the author of where the current priorities lie.
