The development-adaptation spectrum in dryland East Africa: mapping risks, responses and critical questions for social research

Wed, 22 Aug 2018 - 17:40 -- 01443057

This new ASSAR working paper reviews responses to climate-related social-ecological risks in semi-arid areas of East Africa, in order to lay out an agenda for future critical research. By drawing on a wide range of academic and non-academic sources, the paper maps out the main forms of response to the inter-linked risks in the region, and considers how they might be viewed in terms of a spectrum of development-adaptation actions.
