Project Description

This ACCCA project brings together poor communities in drought-hit regions of northern Ethiopia with technical and scientific communities in the spheres of land management, agricultural research, agronomy and climatology to assess vulnerability and to enable and support effective adaptation decisions to reduce vulnerability to climate change. The aim of the project is to:

‘Develop climate adaptation strategies with subsistence farmers to mitigate current and future impacts of climate change, in particular, drought (famine and loss of livelihoods and degradation of natural resources).’
