Pastoral livelihoods and climate change
This research aims to analyse the capacity of different categories of pastoral people to adapt to climate change. Another aim will be to understand whether decentralisation provides greater institutional flexibility for the management of diverse resources in variable contexts, and how best local governments can plan for uncertainty.
The purpose of the project is to design a methodological framework to assess the ‘total economic value’ of pastoralism in Africa under conditions of accelerating climate change that has a high potential of making a significant policy impact.
