On 26-27th March 2009, the Tyndall Centre convened a workshop in Cape Town South Africa. The workshop formed a part of the Tyndall Centre’s Programme on International Development, ‘Securing human welfare: how can international development be sustained in a warming world?’ The workshop brought together researchers, policy makers and representatives of civil society working on climate change and development within the agriculture, water and energy sectors. The objectives of the workshop were twofold: 1. To explore and share ideas on key areas of the interface between climate change and development policy and practice, drawing on and disseminating work coordinated by the Tyndall Centre and research partners in Africa, examining the state of current knowledge on climate change and development, with reference to agriculture, water and energy. 2. To outline, in collaboration with African stakeholders, priorities for further research on climate change and development, identifying potential collaborators and funding streams, with a view to defining a future research agenda and a potential set of working partnerships in Africa. This workshop report is intended to serve three purposes. First, it offers a brief summary of key messages emerging from the workshop. Second, it gives an overview of presentations made in the panel discussions. Third, it documents the discussions between participants that followed the presentations.
