Using a novel climate–water conflict vulnerability index to capture double exposures in Lake Chad

Research article by Lindsay Stringer, Andy Dougill, Uche Okpara

Climate variability is amongst an array of threats facing agricultural livelihoods, with its effects unevenly distributed. With resource conflict being increasingly recognised as one significant outcome of climate variability and change, understanding the underlying drivers that shape differential vulnerabilities in areas that are double-exposed to climate and conflict has great significance. Climate change vulnerability frameworks […]

Research article by Andy Dougill, Philip Antwi-Agyei, Claire Quinn, Samuel Nii Ardey Codjoe, Richard Lamboll, Delali Benjamin Komla Dovie, Samuel Godfried Kwasi Adiku

Smallholder farmers in sub-Saharan Africa are confronted with climatic and non-climatic stressors. Research attention has focused on climatic stressors, such as rainfall variability, with few empirical studies exploring non-climatic stressors and how these interact with climatic stressors at multiple scales to affect food security and livelihoods. This focus on climatic factors restricts understanding of the […]

Challenges to polycentric governance of an international development project tackling land degradation in Swaziland

Research article by Lindsay Stringer

Abstract To effectively address the drivers and impacts of land degradation requires polycentric governance systems that facilitate international development projects (IDPs). This paper analyses an IDP aiming to reduce land degradation in Swaziland. A longitudinal-style qualitative approach draws on repeat household surveys, semi-structured interviews and focus groups. We aim to identify the changes that have […]
