    In the Rift Valley, the Maasai groups of Naishorua, Silale, Menjele, Innkarukok olmane and Olroup live in the heart of Kenya’s Maasai Land: the Kajiado County, with its dryland conditions and semi-arid climate. Today, Maasai men leave their families for longer times and travel further in search of pasture and water resources for their livestock, thus contributing to the increased transboundary movement of various animal herds in the region. Using their observation and understanding of the changing weather patterns, these pastoral communities have been seeking to adapt to the ever-changing climate in an attempt to protect their livelihoods and lifestyle. Among these local nomadic populations, two key figures, Ryan and Paul, from the village of Enkorika, Kajiado County, have been instrumental in helping their communities cope with the negative effects of drought and water shortage.

    Reducing the impacts of climate risk on livelihoods in Karamoja, Uganda - GCP/UGA/042/UK 2018
    Also available in:

    Karamoja, Uganda is one of the most vulnerable regions to climate risks in the country. Drought is the main and recurrent natural disaster, whose effects are amplified by climate change. This affects crop production and pasture for livestock, and has a direct negative impact on the livelihoods of the rural population in the region. Against this background, it was crucial to strengthen the resilience of agropastoralcommunities and the local government in Karamoja, to reduce the impacts of climate risks on livelihoods in the region.

    Public expenditure analysis for climate change adaptation and mitigation in the agricultural sector – A case study of Uganda 2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper presents a methodology for public expenditure review and analysis for climate change adaptation and mitigation in the agricultural sector. It outlines the basic methodological concepts, including the classification of public expenditures in the context of their links to climate change adaptation and mitigation. It also illustrates how such analysis can usefully contribute to policy decision making to better achieve the climate change adaptation and mitigation goals using the case study of Uganda. The proposed classification allows for analysing the level and the composition of public expenditures that influence adaptation capacity of the sector to climate change, and actions that increase or decrease greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in agriculture. This, in turn, allows for assessing whether the sector is stimulated in a way that allows achieving a country’s climate change adaptation and mitigation objectives and form a basis for further evaluation of the effectiveness of individual measures in reaching these objectives.
