Assessing the impacts of climate variability and change on agricultural systems in Eastern Africa while enhancing the regions capacity to undertake integrated assessment of vulnerabilities to future changes in climate

Duration: 01/Mar/2012 - 28/Feb/2014

Locations: Kenya / Tanzania - United Republic Of / Uganda / Ethiopia / Eastern and Southern Africa

Project contact: Rao, KPC

Donor: Columbia University-USA
