PhD Fellows in Climate Change Adaptation Policy

Project: Multi-level analysis of the science-policy-practice interface in climate change adaptation in East and West Africa
Location: 2 positions (one in Ethiopia and the other one in Senegal)
Duration: Three years

Background: With the increased urgency of adaptation to climate change in the agricultural sector, there is more and more experimentation with how to bring scientific insights into national policy discussions. Emerging science-policy interface platforms vary in their forms, but they all aim to be mechanisms to shorten the distance between the co-production of cutting edge applied science and scientifically informed policies that are equitable and effective. However, how and why such modes of science-policy interface work within the political economy of adaptation remains poorly understood.
