The study will focus on pastoralist groups in the Sahel and Horn of Africa and support novel approaches to quantify and map drivers of vulnerability in drylands, and is expected to provide a comprehensive overview of the options for climate-resilient, low-carbon development in these resource poor areas.
The project will conduct a study to support the development of climate insurance instruments for specific types of climate risks in Africa.
