Uganda Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Report Annexes A-G
USAID’s African and Latin American Resilience to Climate Change (ARCC) project compiled these annexes as part of a study on Uganda’s vulnerability to climate change.
The first annex is a focus group discussion guide that includes questions for farmers, such as whether they have observed changes in climate and have modified their growing cycles.
The second is a household survey questionnaire. This is aimed at gauging a household’s size, physical capital and earnings, health and food security, provision of support and observation of climate variability and trends.
A phenological review examines the following key crops: sorghum, coffee, sweet potato, rice, cassava, maize, matooke, and beans. It also includes a value chain analysis for crop simulations for seven locations.
Another annex gives preliminary results for crop simulations for seven locations in Uganda using the EcoCrop model. It found striking discrepancies between where coffee and bananas are planted and where they are most suitable to grow.
The last annex includes results from a workshop on options analysis. This includes recommendations for climate adaptation initiatives in Uganda, such as inter-cropping mattock with coffee; conserving topsoil through terracing and agro-forestry; and strengthening and diversifying livelihoods.Find other country and regional climate risk management resources here.
