These documents are the product of the University of Manchester's "Climate Change, Innovation and ICTs" research project, funded by Canada's International Development Research Centre. They include:

Concept Paper: builds four new conceptual models - i) Climate change vulnerability in developing countries; ii) Climate change adaptation and adaptive capacity of communities and wider 'livelihood systems'; iii) Climate change resilience; iv) The contribution of ICTs to 'e-resilience' and 'e-adaptation'.  The models can be used as the foundation for research, consulting and strategy on ICTs and climate change.

Scoping Study: charts strands and trends in the literature on ICTs, climate change and development, and develops an overview model of the key ICT application areas - mitigation, strategy, monitoring and adaptation.  The scoping study identifies priorities for future research in this field, provides a glossary of field terms, and includes an annotated bibliography of key documents from 1997-2010.
