ACT is a Canadian partner organization in the 5-year, “Coastal Cities at Risk (CCaR): Building Adaptive Capacity for Managing Climate Change in Coastal Megacities” program funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) together with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), under the International Research Initiative on Adaptation to Climate Change (IRIACC).

The CCaR research program has gathered together teams from Bangkok, Lagos, Manila, and Vancouver – chosen for their range of climate-weather, socio-cultural-economic characteristics; representation of other cities; and enhanced research opportunities through ongoing efforts.

The project takes an interdisciplinary approach involving natural, engineering, socio-political-economic and health scientists to build upon and partner with leading programs and international projects.

Ongoing information about the project can be found on the new CCaR website:
