IEU Virtual Talk: An overview of evidence gap and intervention heat maps of climate change adaptation
Date: Wednesday, 9 December 2020; 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm KST (9:00 am - 10:00 am CET)
About the Virtual Talk:
Evidence Gap Maps (EGMs) depict high-quality evidence - or lack thereof - in a thematic area. Participants will learn about the opportunities and limitations associated with EGMs as well as relevance and implications for decision-makers. As a joint collaboration between IEU and DEval, this talk will focus on the recently completed evidence gap and intervention heat maps of climate change adaptation. What is the state of evidence on adaptation interventions and what is their efficacy in helping people in developing countries adapt to climate change?
