Consultation on communities of practice for transdisciplinary research and action in climate change and health in Asia (CoP)

The mixed-method study was conducted with the primary objective of understanding how relevant stakeholders across research, policy, implementation, affected communities, and supporting organizations in Asia can be better supported to shape, undertake, and use transdisciplinary research, and advance action in climate and health (i.e., barriers and opportunities). The study was funded by Wellcome Trust with Quicksand Design Studio PVT Limited, India as the project partner and Empatika in Indonesia, Curiosity Design Research in the Philippines, and Beyond Group in Lebanon and Jordan as part of the consortium of partners.
