Bureau de la GIZ à Bujumbura (GIZ)
This is a three-volume report on an integrated vulnerability analysis of Burundi at both the national and local levels, conducted and on behalf of GIZ by Adelphi in collaboration with the European Academy of Bozen (EURAC) and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). The report provides both a scientific basis and practical tips for the planning of adaptation strategies, as well as for their impact monitoring and evaluation.
The first stage of the research saw a national vulnerability analysis with a focus on vulnerability in subsistence farming and malaria-related risks. The vulnerability maps generated during this process facilitated the identification of regions of particularly high sensitivity to climate change (hotspots). The second stage built further upon this work, identifying three hotspot regions and conducting detailed, participatory vulnerability analyses.
