    The survival struggles of ordinary women - whether as fighters, rape survivors, camp inhabitants, mothers or peacemakers - are highlighted in the accounts of conflict situations covered in this report. As part of the process of compiling testimonies, the authors set up partnerships with interested women's groups in different countries. Workshop discussions and training courses were held with local women, who later shaped and constructed the interviews themselves. The women did not just record events - they also documented their perceptions and understandings of their experiences.

    The ten ASARECA member countries (Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda) have adopted, or are planning to adopt, a range of climate change adaptation strategies in agriculture (see Table 1 for a summary). Of the 26 strategies mentioned, only two are common to all 10 countries, while five more are common to five or more. The strategies common to all member countries include the development and promotion of drought-tolerant and early-maturing crop species and exploitation of new and renewable energy sources.

    Climate change has been a significant issue since the end of the 20th century, and impacts a variety of economic sectors, primarily agriculture. The negative impacts of climate change on agricultural production are important because agriculture is closely linked to food security. Although they contribute the least to global pollution, it is estimated that African countries will be the most affected by climate variability.
