DA is extensively working on climate change communications and climate adaptive planning at the grass-roots level to facilitate further uptake and upscale of these adaptive measures.

Also, DA is actively engaged in policy research at national, regional and global levels, and is facilitating practice-to-policy connect for climate resilient development.
