  • The value of indigenous knowledge in climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies in the African Sahel

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    It is increasingly realised that mitigation and adaptation should not be pursued independently of each other but as complements. Integrating mitigation and adaptation into climate change concerns is not a completely new idea in the African Sahel where the local populations in this region, through their indigenous knowledge systems, have developed and implemented extensive mitigation and adaptation strategies that have enabled them to reduce their vulnerability to past climate variability and change.

  • Water for Production: an Overview of the Main Issues and Collection of Supporting Resources

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Water is fundamental to the well being of women and men both in the household and productive activities and is key to poverty reduction and development. Water is also a strategic resource in that its control is a source of power. Interventions that change the control, use of and access to water resources inevitably raise gender issues and opportunities. This report provides key considerations and recommendations in this area drawing on lessons learnt from case studies in Indonesia, Bangladesh, India and Sudan.

  • Women, Income-generating Activities and the Conservation of Natural Resources: Medicinal, Culinary and Aromatic Plants in the Sudan

    Sectors:
    Approach:

    This paper presents information on the role of Sudanese medicinal, culinary and aromatic plants in the conservation of natural resources and in the generation of income for rural women. In most parts of the Sudan women constitute the principal labor force for both cash crops and food production. Women's role in the agricultural labor force increased during a period of economic hardship, resulting from natural and man-made disasters, in the 1990s.

  • Methodological framework: an internal scoping report of the project strategies for increasing human resilience in Sudan: lessons for climate change adaptation in North and East Africa

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    This paper details a project research methodology for assessing existing resilience-building strategies in Sudan to current climate change vulnerabilities. This is built on a hypothesis that sustainable livelihoods (SL) can fill the practical and conceptual gap between local vulnerability to climate change and national and intergovernmental policy processes.The methodology described is based around a sustainable livelihoods conceptual model as a community approach to climate-change resilience, as well as a framework for analysis.

  • Sustainable livelihood approach for assessing community resilience to climate change: case studies from Sudan

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    Community based sustainable livelihood (SL) and environmental management (EM) measures have already been implemented in rural communities of Sudan. These measures aim to build resilience to the stresses of drought and climate variability, as well as increase adaptive capacity to future climate change.

  • Adapting to climate change in East Africa: a strategic approach

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    This paper provides an overview of the likely impacts of climate change in three least developed countries in East Africa: Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. In the coming decades, climate change is likely to alter temperatures and distribution of rainfall, contribute to sea-level rise and increase the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events in East Africa.
