    Because vulnerability is a conceptual construct rather than a directly observable phenomenon,

    most vulnerability assessments measure a set of “vulnerability indicators”. In order to identify

    the core approaches and range of variation in the field, we conducted a systematic literature

    review on local vulnerability to climate change. The systematic review entailed an

    identification of frameworks, concepts, and operationalizations and a transparency assessment

    of their reporting. Three fully defined relevant frameworks of vulnerability were identified:

To better integrate fisheries considerations into the CAEA process, the CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) initiated the project that significantly improved the way fisheries issues are addressed. The use of CAEA has been officially adopted as a national policy for agricultural development.

    This sourcebook entitled “Addressing water,food and poverty problems together: Methods,tools and lessons” is part of a wider process to capitalize on results from the Phase 1 of CPWF (2004-2008).

    Phase 1 of CPWF cast its net widely. Sixty-eight individual research projects were carried out in ten river basins around the world. The learning was immense. Unfortunately, many Phase 1 lessons and experiences are locked away in people’s minds or hidden in long technical and scientific reports that are difficult to access, particularly for non-researchers.

    G-Range is a global model that simulates generalized changes in rangelands through time,

    created with support from the International Livestock Research Institute. Spatial data and a set

    of parameters that control plant growth and other ecological attributes in landscape units

    combine with computer code to represent ecological process such as soil nutrient and water

    dynamics, vegetation growth, fire, and wild and domestic animal offtake. The model is spatial,

    with areas of the world divided into square cells.
