UCL: Political Ecology of CBA in the Ethiopian highlands | This poster describes a project which analysed responses to the need for CBA in two different areas in the Ethiopian highlands.   The research found that the definition of community is diverse, and gender, wealth, education level , age and social status play a role in decision-making processes related to CBA. It also found that the particular characteristics of Ethiopian society affect the CBA implementation process.   Contact…

Project HORTINLEA: Adaptation options for growers of African Indigenous Vegetables | This poster describes a project that looked at how participants in the African indigenous vegetable (AIV) value-chain can benefit from CBA techniques.  The aim was to discover the challenges and potentials of CBA options and to assess the cost benefit of different approaches.  This project is based on the HORTINLEA framework - Horticultural Innovation and Learning for Improved Nutrition and Livelihood in…

Tanzania Agricultural Research Institute: Community perception and adaptation to climate change in semi-arid areas of western Tanzania | This poster describes a study which assessed the perceptions of Tanzanian farmers about climate change and adaptation measures. The study found that farmers perceptions of climate changes were in line with meteorological data.   Researchers also asked farmers about the barriers to effective adaptation. The most commonly quoted constraint was a lack of…

UNDP: Ecosystem-based adaptation in mountain ecosystems | This poster describes a joint project which worked to develop ecosystem-based adaptation mechanisms in three countries, Peru, Nepal and Uganda. The project has developed measures that respond to local drivers of degredation such as overgrazing as well as to climate induced impacts.    The project  designed and developed m&e systems for each pilot country to track monitor and evaluate the impact of their new ecosystem-based adaptation…

Vietnam National University of Agriculture: Using new technologies to predict hydrological processes and soil erosion in Vietnam | This poster describes a joint research project which looked at how new technologies can be used to assess and predict hydrological processes and soil erosion.   The project focused on the upper Ma river basin in Vietnam. It gathered data from a range of sources and applied open source software and modelling tools to the information.   The results showed forest…

Practical Action: Conflict reduction in North Darfur | This poster describes a joint project which aimed to increase the adaptive capacity of communities in  Kebakabiya region of North Darfur. The area is a major agricultural area and also lies on a pastoralist migration route. Increasing drought has led to conflicts over water.  The project established community-based organisations and Peace Committees which worked to resolve disputes and identify community needs, translating these into…

Practical Action: Mainstreaming the use of climate data by smallholders in Zimbabwe | This poster describes a joint project which aimed to improve the use of climate data by smallholders in Zimbabwe.    The project worked with Zimbabwe's agricultural extension service, AGRITEX, to improve its ability to share climate information with smallholder farmers. Farmers were then encouraged to use the climate data for planning and budgeting.    The poster also highlights the challenges of…
