Abstract

This report draws on the experience of African research institutions involved in the CIRCLE (Climate Impacts, Research Capacity and Leadership Enhancement in Sub-Saharan Africa) Programme, to highlight areas of good practice and potential pitfalls in developing strategic frameworks for climate change research. It is based on responses to a questionnaire survey by research leaders within 14 CIRCLE institutions, as well as broader discussions held at CIRCLE workshops in 2015 and 2016.

Given the limitations of our study and the diversity of African research institutions, recommendations can only be tentative and subject to adaptation to local contexts, but recommendations are set out for African climate change research leaders, senior university managers, development donors and research funders, and national governments.
