Feb 2018

Karamoja, Uganda is one of the most vulnerable regions to climate risks in the country. Drought is the main and recurrent natural disaster, whose effects are amplified by climate change. This affects crop production and pasture for livestock, and has a direct negative impact on the livelihoods of the rural population in the region. Against this background, it was crucial to strengthen the resilience of agropastoralcommunities and the local government in Karamoja, to reduce the impacts of climate risks on livelihoods in the region.
