LDCs Universities Consortioum on Climate Change (LUCCC)

A South-South collaborative network for enhancing research capacity and expertise in climate change

LUCCC aims to foster a South-South collaborative network for enhancing research capacity and expertise in climate change. The consortium creates opportunities to network and enhance the capacity of Southern universities to develop common research projects and implement teaching and training programs in different climate change topics. The focus of the Consortium will be on climate change adaptation, especially community-based adaptation. The consortium works with the most vulnerable countries and for the most vulnerable communities. LUCCC aims to foster two-way collaborative learning and capacity-building. The consortium will also enable LDC universities and research institutes to serve as repositories of knowledge and suppliers of capacity. This will enable national agencies to effectively implement community based adaptation initiatives as they have resource people to train implementers.
