Sub-Saharan Drylands - Towards enhanced resilience

Afrique sub saharienne

Titre : Sub-Saharan Drylands - Towards enhanced resilience

Région : Sub-Saharan Drylands

Date : 2013-2017

Ref : NDF C37

The NDF financed study will form part of the planned flagship report on drylands in sub-Saharan Africa. The broader aspects of drylands development will be considered in the flagship report, which will take a comprehensive, multi-sectoral view of the longer term development prospects for drylands areas. Topics to be covered in the flagship report include : (i) current and likely future characteristics of drylands environments ; (ii) features of vulnerability and resilience at the household level ; (iii) interventions showing potential to improve the productivity and resilience of productive systems (including livestock production systems, agriculture, tree-based systems) ; (iv) benefits of adopting landscape approaches ; (v) the potential contribution of markets and trade ; and (vi) the role of social protection programs including safety nets.

The NDF finance will focus on pastoralists and livestock systems : * Analyze the current patterns of vulnerability to climate shocks of different livestock dependent groups ; * Quantify the feed resource base as the key vulnerability driver for livestock dependent households ; * Assess the impact of future climate change on dry lands livelihood systems (with a particular focus on livestock-based systems) ; * Model the impact of practices that can enhance the resilience of various livestock dependent livelihood groups to current climate variability, including the potential to promote low carbon, climate-resilient development via Payment for Environmental Services (PES) schemes ; * and Support stakeholder consultation, outreach and dissemination of the findings of the report to different audiences.

Financing : Total cost of the project will be USD 1.825 million, of which NDF will provide EUR 0.5 million, and World Bank USD 1.175 million.
