PROVIA is an exciting new global initiative which aims to provide direction and coherence at the international level for research on vulnerability, impacts and adaptation (VIA). It is a joint collaboration between UNEP, WMO and UNESCO.  Launched with the support of leading scientists and decision-makers, PROVIA responds to the urgent call for a more cohesive and coordinated approach to harmonize, mobilize, and communicate the growing knowledge-base on VIA.

To this end, the PROVIA website provides a visible and interactive platform for a growing network of scientists, practitioners and decision-makers working towards identifying knowledge gaps and meeting policy needs in VIA research.  The website supports our vision for PROVIA: To create a new and vitally important interface between the scientific community and decision makers involved in VIA issues, and improve the availability and accessibility of such knowledge to the people that need it most.

Here you will find a letter from Prof. Martin Parry, Chair of the PROVIA Interim Scientific Steering Committee, with more information about the initiative.

If you have any feedback or suggestions about PROVIA or the new website, please contact the initiative at provia@provia-climatechange.org
