Summary:

The African and Latin American Resilience to Climate Change (ARCC) Program has published a report,

Senegal Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and Options Analysis. The study is focused on the rural pastoral and rain-fed farming areas of four departments in Eastern Senegal: Matam, Kanel, Goudiry, and Bakel. The study area straddles several different agro-ecological zones, with livestock raising playing a greater role in livelihoods located in the more arid North. In the more humid South, communities rely more on crop farming and forest resources.
