Technical workshop on security implications of climate change in the Sahel

 

Dakar (Senegal), 17 November 2009

 

   

This workshop presented a detailed spatial description of the region, localising current features and stakes. A group of 25 experts and partners from various institutions and agencies provided feedback on the outputs, interpreted results and identified missing elements. Participants’ expertise in different domains helped underscore some of the implied links between climate and non-climate variables. Discussions led to the identification of variables which seem to be particular relevant for the Sahel and thematic entries for more detailed case studies (agro-pastoral issues, access to water, climate exposure, food security and livelihoods). > Summary Record
