Description:

Integrated responses to drought risk in Namibia and Angola.

Summary / Notes:

Droughts threaten millions of people in Sub-Saharan Africa, leading to famines, water shortages, migration and casualties. Climate change will most probably exacerbate the devastating consequences as exceptional droughts are expected to occur more frequently. Conventional drought risk assessments however, do not provide adequate tools, as they often limit their focus to environmental parameters, ignoring social vulnerabilities. Integrated strategies are required to carry out holistic drought risk assessments that serve to find adapted technological and institutional solutions to ensure water and food security. This will contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals 1 "No Poverty", 2 "Zero Hunger" and 6 "Clean Water and Sanitation". Keywords: Drought, Southern Africa, Water and food security, Vulnerability, Risk, Coping capacity, Namibia, Angola.
