This report has been commissioned as part of a series of studies being undertaken by CRS that is to inform design of new activities under CRS’ Consortium SUR1M initiative. SUR1M is one of 10 projects across the Sahel Region provisionally approved by the DFIDfunded Building Resiliency and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) umbrella program. The report assesses climate change threats and their impacts on vulnerable populations and ecosystems, identifies adaptation strategies, and proposes climate smart agricultural (CSA) technologies and strategies to address the overarching objectives of the BRACED program. Analysis includes an economic and technical feasibility study of CSA practices to support recuperation of degraded lands, soil and water management, and
sustainable agriculture and pastoralism.
