Local Governance and Adapting to Climate Change in Sub-Saharan Africa (LGACC)

Kenya

Titre : Local Governance and Adapting to Climate Change in Sub-Saharan Africa (LGACC)

Pays : Kenya

Durée : Jan 2015 to Dec 2018

Contexte
Climate change is a significant challenge for communities highly dependent on natural resources. Increasing incidents of drought, floods, rising temperatures and uncertain weather patterns put pressure on these resources and threaten the livelihoods of communities. Land and other natural resources are critical for the livelihoods of agropastoral communities, practices and institutions. It is thus crucial to build the capacity of communities to adapt to changing environmental conditions. Property rights and governance structures which regulate natural resource use are even more important in the context of communally-managed resources such as scrublands, forests and rangelands.

Présentation
The aim of this project is to identify characteristics of land governance systems and property rights regimes most likely to increase household adaptive capacity across agropastoral areas of Sub-Sahara Africa.
Research focuses on semi-arid areas of Burkina Faso and Kenya characterized by livestock and mixed crop-livestock production systems. It particularly looks at areas where communities are highly dependent on communal land and natural resources that are exposed to significant climate shifts.
