Briefing note on the Africa Climate Change Resilience Alliance (ACCRA)
The Africa Climate Change Resilience Alliance (ACCRA) has been working over the last 7 years (from November 2009 to December 2016) to influence climate resilience policy and practice in Uganda, Mozambique and Ethiopia.
This brief highlights ACCRA's unique contribution to enhancing the governance of adaptation and planning processes through a multistakeholder process that builds on:
(a) research, knowledge and learning
(b) developing trusting and responsive relationships between government, civil society organisations and communities
(c) context specific and needs-informed capacity development
(d) alliance building and networking
It also brings out stories of change that show how ACCRA made gender responsive climate resilience a reality in Uganda, Mozambique and Ethiopia.
