Last week SLU researchers were in Kenya to start up a new research project about the link between land ownership and the capacity for climate change in three semi-arid regions in Kenya dominated by pastoralism. A comparative analysis of different tenure systems and their implications for climate vulnerability in semi-arid Sub-Saharan African is to be done. The project is financed by The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) and will initially run for three years.

Three projects have received grants for research starting 2018. One project hope to contribute to a better understanding of the merits of using intervals in survey research. Another project aims to provide new insights on how pastoralist land tenure can be designed to enable effective adaptation strategies. The third grant is a scholarship that enables continuous research for PhD Mattias Vesterberg.
