priority activity 1

Priority Activity 1:
Develop and communicate to governments and international agencies a prioritized international agenda of research on VIA Vulnerability, Impacts and Adaptation

PROVIA has developed a list of global VIA research priorities through a series of activities aimed at identifying research gaps, and through dialogue with both the science and policy communities. The gap analysis was based on a broad range of sources including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group II reports, peer-reviewed articles, books, workshop and meeting proceedings, and consultations with individual experts

A summary of findings was presented at various meetings in 2012. PROVIA will launch an official report on the global VIA research priorities in February 2013. Follow-up activities will include, but will not be limited to, expanding the global research priority topics into a research action plan to support international VIA research, and using the list of research priorities as a background document to support upcoming sessions of the UNFCCC.
