The ARA envisions a world by 2030 in which the research community is a highly valued partner to policymakers, practitioners and the most vulnerable communities, and engages effectively for the delivery of innovative, user-driven solutions for adaptation and resilience from the global to local levels.
The ARA will contribute to the realisation of this vision by implementing its Theory of Change, which defines the ARA’s mission in response to the problem statement, and specifies the functions, outcomes, impacts and values that will enable the ARA to achieve its mission.
Mission of the ARA
