In November 2015, ASSAR’s (Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions) southern Africa researchers - from the University of Botswana, University of Cape Town, University of Namibia and Oxfam GB - conducted a two-day Vulnerability Risk Assessment (VRA) workshop in Bobirwa, Botswana. The VRA process aims to develop a common understanding among various stakeholders of the main hazards and issues affecting those living in a given social-ecological landscape.

The VRA explored possible solutions/strategies that build resilience to drought, such as:

  • advising people what type of crops to grow;
  • improving pasture and livestock management practises;
  • promoting sustainable harvesting of mopane worms;
  • investing in water harvesting;
  • proposing income-generating activities instead of waiting for rain.
