Research Brief: “Ground Truthing” Vulnerability in Africa

UT Austin’s Climate Change and African Political Stability (CCAPS) program just released a new brief highlighting the results of primary research designed to test CCAP’s vulnerability model, which focuses on the security dimension of climate vulnerability (in this case, “the potential for climate change to put large numbers of people at risk of death from exposure to climate related hazards.”) To test the model, and gauge the local understanding of and response to this climate-security challenge, the research team interviewed a broad cross-section of local civil society actors in “Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.”

Both the brief and the full report can be found here.
