    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    The purpose of the Rapid Loss Appraisal Tool for agribusiness value chains is to provide a sufficiently accurate pre-screening tool for identifying intervention points along agribusiness value chains (VC), working out incentives for VC operators and proposing measures to reduce pre- and post-harvest losses. The tool supports the design of concrete interventions that have
    the primary aim of improving food security at the subsistence level, either on farms or in communities, and the secondary aim of upgrading specific VCs.

    Publication date:
    Objective:

    In an urgent call to action, The Environmental Justice Foundation have published this report analysing the potential for climate change to increase conflict in vulnerable states. The key message of the report is that climate change is as much a human rights issue as it is an environmental issue, with the potential for existing issues to be exacerbated, and combining with new problems arising in terms of resource depletion, food and water security, and state security.

  • Climate change and conflict: lessons for conflict resolution from the Southern Sahel of Sudan

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Using a human security perspective, this report identifies and analyses local and international non-governmental organisation (NGO) interventions in cases of conflicts related to the environment and environmental change in the southern Sahel of Sudan. The research largely focused on conflicts between and within pastoralist, agro-pastoralist and farmer communities in the context of these same challenges – making the argument and then building on the premise that the study area is relevant from which to draw lessons for climate adaption.

  • Strengthening the link between climate change adaptation and national development plans: lessons from the case of population in National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPAs)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    Reviewing 41 National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPA), this paper identifies the range of interventions implemented by least developed countries (LDCs) and the structural issues that hamper better alignment of climate change adaptation and national development planning. The paper analyses the varying degrees of integration of NAPAs into development plans and identifies a lack of cross-ministerial bodies as a barrier to alignment. It then takes the issue of population as an example for the need for longer-term approaches to adaptation.
