Tribhuvan University, Nepal: Using information and communication technologies to manage the risk of glacial lake flooding

This poster describes a project which focussed on the hazard of flooding from glacial lakes, using Tiptala Glacial Lake in Nepal as a case study. The project reviewed the potential for information and communication technologies in relation to monitoring, communicating and mitigating risks. It concluded that access to communication technologies could help promote understanding of climate change, disseminate warnings and also help to increase climate resilience by enabling local…

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 systems.

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 and field crops have dramatically changed in the area between 1993 and 2009. It showed that deforestation, agricultural expansion…

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 community action plans.

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 maintaining activity after the project ended. Note: This poster was updated on 16 April…

University of Lagos: Resource Governance in the Nigerian savannah

This poster describes a joint project which studied natural resource governance in the Nigerian savannah. The study looked at policies relating to agriculture, the environment, forestry and energy. Researchers found that national policies on natural resources, rural livelihoods and food security are detailed, well intentioned and cross cutting. However the study found that governance arrangements are poor. It found that the authority for most CBA-related work is based at state…

University of Cape Town: On-farm adaptation options in southern Africa

This poster describes a project which looked at the usefulness of changing farming practices to combat climate change in southern Africa. The project studied measures for adapting to climate change in three locations: Swaziland, Lesotho and Malawi. It looked at possible changes in farming practices such as changing fertiliser amounts, planting dates and planting density. The results varied across the locations. Communities in cool and wet areas and moderate and wet areas appear have…

UCL: Political Ecology of CBA in the Ethiopian highlands

Thsi 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: Jin-ho Chung, PhD Candidate, University College London…

Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience: Canal Clearing in Zambia

This poster describes a project funded by the Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience in Zambia. The project involved clearing a 1.5 km canal near the community of Mindinga in Western Zambia. Mindinga has a population of 290 people who are dependent on agriculture and livestock. Crops have frequently been affected by flooding. After the canal was cleared the community reclaimed 25 hectares of previously waterlogged land. The water drained from the canal is also available for irrigating…
