ASSAR team members benefited from Small Opportunities Grants that gave early-career researchers the chance to tap into a broad range of strengths, skills, perspectives, and ideas across different semi-arid hotspots. These opportunities contributed towards joint outputs across the ASSAR regions. Through these grants we bolstered the influencing and communications capacity of ASSAR researchers, built stronger ties with stakeholders in the regionstrained early-career researchers to work with stakeholders on improving local adaptation efforts, and boosted the Research-into-Use work done by regional teams.
