“This working paper forms part of SPARC’s aim to generate evidence to build the resilience of millions of pastoralists, agro-pastoralists and farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East. By taking a regional analysis of donor approaches to the implementation of adaptation finance in fragile and conflict affected situations in the Sahel and East Africa, this research aims to explore:

  • Whether and how climate adaptation programmes have been conflict-sensitive in fragile and conflict-affected situations;
  • The barriers to and enablers of increasing adaptation finance to these fragile and conflict- affected contexts.”
