The April issue of Collective Action News, addresses climate change and its impacts on agriculture in East Africa. Our lead story–the work of Phil Thornton and co-workers – is part of a larger research project called the Climate – Land Interaction Project (CLIP). Linkages between land use/cover and climate change are being examined through various methods, and two-way interactions between land use and regional climate systems are being quantified at multiple scales in East Africa.
The issues newsbytes, all related to the topic of climate change and agriculture, feature work from no less than six Centres!
