Contextualising Pathways to Resilience in Kenya’s ASALs under the Big Four Agenda
This brief synthesizes insights from the five-year multi-county research project ‘Pathways to Resilience in Semi-Arid Economies’ (PRISE) in four counties of Kenya and examines how climate change impacts in arid and semi-arid lands (ASALs) threaten the realisation of food and nutrition security and employment creation.
About the Research
The livestock sector has the capacity to mitigate climate-related risks in the ASALs if matched with climate-smart investments that support the adaptive capacity of local women and vulnerable groups. This brief, produced in partnership with PRISE, explores the impact of investments in the livestock sector and value chains on climate change in Kenya’s ASALs.
