(Proj. AF38) Integrated
Assessment of Miombo
Region: Exploration of
Impacts and Adaptation
Options in Relation to
Climate Change and
Extremes
[Malawi, Mozambique,
Zambia, Zimbabwe]
Project Goal
To assess vulnerability to climate
variability and extreme events in
the miombo region in terms of
life, livelihoods, land use as a
basis for production and
livelihoods, and to guide
adaptation
Researchers are drawn from the
Environment, Forestry,
Agriculture, Meteorology, Water,
Economic Development
Departments and
Universities/Research Centers.
The sectors involved include
FOOD, WATER, LAND USE,
LIVELIHOODS and NAPAs
