Webinar: Climate vulnerability assessments of South Sudan
17 March 2021
This short and informative webinar will present a geo-spatial climate vulnerability mapping tool developed by GeoAdapt, a project funded by IFAD’s Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme II. The method has been applied in the design of IFAD country strategies and projects in Sudan, Nepal, Zimbabwe and South Sudan.
The assessment method combines freely available geo-spatial datasets into indices on climate vulnerability. This allows design teams to identify and target areas with concentrations of high climatic stress, high sensitivity and low adaptive capacity.
This webinar will present the assessment that has been undertaken for a project design in Sudan.
- Giancarlo Pini - Research, Assessment and Monitoring Division of the World Food Programme (WFP). His work focuses on analysing and modelling multi temporal Earth observation and climate data-sets to support food security analysis, decision making and project design.
- Michelle Latham - Geo-spatial content consultant at IFAD. Michelle works across a number of geospatial projects aimed at up-scaling enterprise GIS and improving and informing project design, reporting, M&E, and impact assessments.
