SC 8.16 Planning the next generation of adaptation research: how to coordinate, broker and amplifying large research consortia to achieve development impact

Thursday 12 May, 13.45 – 15.30, Beurs Lounge

The session aims to critically reflect on how large multi-stakeholder consortia can best support adaptation research and practice. It will draw on the experience of a number of ongoing research programmes, seeking lessons learned and new directions for coordinating, brokering and amplifying adaptation research in multi-stakeholder consortia. The session will start by presenting the results of a review of opportunities/
barriers to coordinating large adaptation research consortia, setting the scene for subsequent discussion (six min). In an extended panel discussion, six panellists will present personal experiences via ‘lightning presentations’ (1-2 key messages). Audience members will then be encouraged to take the podium and share thoughts as part of the panel through a ‘fish-bowl’ session.
