Experiences in AFRICA

PICOTEAM supports the Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) Programme in Participatory Action Research In 2009 PICOTEAM was engaged by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) to support Researchers on the application of Participatory Action Research / Action Research (PAR/AR) on the Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) programme as part of a mentoring team composed of experienced PAR/AR practitioners from Zimbabwe, Senegal, Cameroon, Algeria and Indonesia. The mentoring team has put together a PAR/AR reference guide that focuses on the application of PAR/AR on climate change adaptation in Africa. The reference guide borrowed heavily on PICOTEAM members’ experiences in the development of PAR/AR concepts under the African Highlands Initiative (AHI).

Currently, in 2011, PICOTEAM supports the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Food Agriculture and Natural Resources Directorate to develop a proposal for the development of a regional Climate Change programme. The proposal was submitted and accepted for funding by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The proposed project will facilitate the development of a Climate Change Programme (CCP) at the SADC secretariat.
