Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate Change in semi-arid regions of East Africa

This report summarizes key findings from the regional diagnostic study (RDS) of the ASSAR East Africa team, and identifies major gaps in the existing literature on areas of vulnerability and adaptation in semi-arid regions of East Africa.

The discussion provides the foundation for detailed case study work planned for the major phase of research, the Regional Research Program (RRP), as well as an underpinning guide to develop a dialogue on adaptation options.
