Impact story: Rural Adaptation in East Africa: synthesising evidence for targeted national responses to climate change


HyCRISTAL’s rural work, is developing pathways for new climate research to support the resilience of rural communities vulnerable to climate change in two pilot locations, Mukono in Uganda and Homa Bay in Kenya, that capture two different Lake Victoria Basin national governance and policy regimes.

It is providing a rich suite of data and methodological training to understand current livelihood patterns and factors limiting peoples’ ability to adapt their sources of livelihood and policy implications through learning platforms and policy engagement in partnership with HyCRISTAL’s advocacy and academic partners in Uganda and Kenya. These tools are building an evidence-based pathway to rural adaptation at the county and national level. As HyCRISTAL’s climate modelling projections become available, they will intersect with the data on adaptations and the growing knowledge of decision-making processes.
