Adaptation to climate variability in the coastal zone - CORDIO East Africa
The project is developing a Coastal Climate Outlook to forecast climate hazards to which coastal communities are vulnerable. Social vulnerability to climate change will be measured, and tools refined, for broader use in Eastern Africa.

Mechal - Resilience of small scale farmers - Indigo Development & Change
This research project aims to identify, evaluate and, where appropriate, adjust existing strategies to cope with droughts in order to develop farming practices adapted to changing climatic conditions in semi-arid areas of South Africa and Ethiopia through an action research approach. It will also generate strategies to aid rural women, who are among the most vulnerable land users.

Developing promising strategies using analogue locations in Eastern and Southern Africa - CALESA
This project will test potential agricultural adaptation strategies for rain-fed agriculture in the semi-arid and sub-humid tropics, in particular Kenya and Zimbabwe. This will be achieved by using a combination of model-based ex-ante analyses and iterative field-based research on station and in farmers’ fields.
