    Vulnerability and adaptation to climate change in the semi-arid regions of West Africa

    Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions, 2015
    The West Africa region spans humid, sub-humid, semi-arid and arid climate regimes. It is currently home to over 340 million people, and constitutes 39% of sub-Saharan Africa’s population. The regional population is expected to exceed 400 million by 2020 and 500 million between 2030 and 2035.

    Fertilizers and low emission development in sub-Saharan Africa

    Climate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016
    Many countries in Africa included fertilizer use, soil fertility management, and agricultural inputs as part of their contributions to the Paris Climate Agreement. While nitrogen (N) fertilizers contribute substantially to nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions globally, emissions from fertilizers are still low in sub-Saharan Africa.

    East Africa Regional Diagnostic Study

    Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions, 2015
    Home to hundreds of millions of people, the semi-arid regions of Africa and Asia are particularly vulnerable to climate-related impacts and risks. Working in 11 countries in these regions, ASSAR is a research project that seeks to understand the factors that have prevented climate change adaptation from being more widespread and successful.

    Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate Change in the Semi-Arid Regions of East Africa

    Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions, 2015
    The Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR) Consortium seeks to deepen understanding of climate vulnerability and adaptation in semi-arid regions, and help transform current adaptation practice to a mode that achieves proactive, widespread adaptation embedded in development activities.

    Planning for climate change in the semi-arid regions of Southern Africa

    Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions, 2015
    Semi-arid areas in Southern Africa are characterised by high rainfall variability, frequent droughts, low soil moisture and extreme events such as flash floods. These conditions provide the foundation of vulnerability of communities in these areas.

    Vulnerability and adaptation to climate change in the semi-arid regions of Southern Africa

    Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions, 2015
    The semi-arid areas of southern Africa are culturally and ecologically diverse characterised by a high proportion of poor people with limited access to services, high unemployment levels, high levels of inequality, and high levels of HIV and AIDS.

    How can we better understand and manage the impacts of droughts

    Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions, 2016
    Semi-arid regions of the world are often thought of as being particularly vulnerable to climate change. They are already climatically stressed with high temperatures, low rainfall and long dry seasons.

    Communicating climate change for adaptation: challenges, success and future priorities

    Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions, 2016
    Communicating climate change to communities in semi-arid regions remains a difficult task. This information brief helps communicators understand best practice and helps researchers understand where knowledge gaps exist.Key findings:
