    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.

  • 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.

  • Fuel provision and gender-based violence: fuel-efficiency as a prevention strategy

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    This document provides a summary of literature which explores links between women's roles in the provision of fuel for the household, and their vulnerability to gender-based violence (GBV) in displaced settings. It surveys and summarises international guidelines and principles on fuel provision and GBV. The document reviews two case studies from Kenya and Sudan, and highlights lessons which can be learned from these. The desk review identifies obstacles in this area and key gaps in knowledge on fuel-related issues for displaced people, particularly 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.
