Examining Processes of Knowledge Co-production for Climate Adaptation in East Africa

TanzaniaCSTPR graduate student Meaghan Daly, along with Lisa Dilling (CSTPR/ENVS), Mara Goldman (Geography), and Eric Lovell (Geog), received a National Science Foundation award to study the role of indigenous climate knowledge in climate change adaptation. This research aims to understand how knowledge is produced and incorporated by actors across scales and with varying epistemologies, and to understand how power and the processes of co-production affect the salience, credibility and legitimacy of knowledge. The project will utilize a mixed-method case study design, which will incorporate multiple embedded units of analysis situated at 3 different institutional scales in Tanzania, East Africa.
