dc.descriptionThis report containing case studies on environmental change, human vulnerability and security, brings into focus many of the issues that are highlighted in the AEO report, by providing concrete examples of the impact of environmental change on human vulnerability, and the ways people respond to these impacts. The case studies illustrate the particular nature of vulnerability in the African context, and the specificity of the lessons and recommendations that they provide. This is indeed an important aspect of self-reliance. Sustainable development takes place in a particular context that is social, cultural and environmental in nature and therefore interventions to promote such development will be more likely to succeed by considering each set of contexts.en_US
