Strengthening Expertise

Strengthening Expertise (SE) is focused on building the capacity of MSc/PhD students, research institutes and NGOs from the region for conducting interdisciplinary research on climate change vulnerability, adaptation and resilience.

Under SE, HI-AWARE will organise an annual Science-Policy Dialogue on a rotational basis in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Pakistan, to bring together key stakeholders, including researchers and policymakers, working on climate change adaptation.

It will also organise gender-sensitivity training sessions and climate change vulnerability and adaptation workshops in the study sites for stakeholders to foster common understanding of critical Hi-AWARE issues, including challenges and opportunities.
