LaSyRe-Sahel – University of Copenhagen

A region wide assessment of land system resilience and climate robustness in the agricultural frontline of Sahel - the triple exposure of local livelihood strategies and food provision to climate change, population pressure and globalization.

The project ended in 2013.

The ambition of this project was to employ presently scattered knowledge to create a coherent, region wide overview of the agricultural systems in the drier parts of the Sahel. By bringing systematic monitoring together with novel, conceptual models for coupled human-environmental systems, we aimed at providing policy relevant insight that can foster alternative scenarios for development of resilient livelihood strategies and food security.
