Présentation
This anthropological project will investigate and compare how small holders in Zimbabwe and Botswana perceive, frame and cope with *double exposure* of climate change and economic globalization in their social-ecological system. A sustainable livelihoods and situational approach will be applied and poor and woman-headed households will be in focus. The project investigates drylands with pastoralism and rainfed agriculture in the Limpopo river basin.The current challenges of food production and coping with periods of droughts are already significant and the selected Babirwa communities on the Zimbabwe and Botswana border are in the frontline of climate change. The study will facilitate the understanding of a more coherent perspective for the elaboration of strategies and policies to adapt to resource scarcity, extreme weather situations and related aspects of climate change.
