Escaping the pastoralist paradox in the face of climate change: A comparative analysis of different tenure systems and their implications for climate vulnerability in semi-arid Sub-Saharan AfricanPastoralists across East Africa are challenged by loss of land, political conflicts, population increase, economic inequality, and climate change. A transition from pastoralism to agro-pastoralism has been observed in semiarid areas in response to these challenges. The hypothesis for this project is that the resilience of this transition rests on the capacity to provide secure, but still flexible, access to land, the so-called paradox of pastoralist land tenure.
intervals, in a joint effort between economics, psychophysics and statistics. The hypotheses are that the intervals reduce a number of well-known biases, provide a useful picture of response uncertainty and increase response rates. Lab experiments (GEL and classroom) and field surveys (national and international) will be the methods of the project. Expected outcomes are a better understanding of the merits of using intervals in survey research. Development of underlying theory. Tools for practical use (user-friendly software). A strengthening of co-operation between economics, psychophysics and statistics.
