    Pathway #1: Food insecurity and competition over access and use of natural resources

    (I) The effects of the climate crisis can impact food, land, and water systems in various ways, reducing their production and productivity, increasing food insecurity and potentially lead to conflict because of the reduced opportunity costs of participating in violent acts.

    Researchers of ICARDA are slowly improving towards participatory and community-based approaches to incorporate users’ perspectives. This not only increases the efficiency and effectiveness of agricultural research, but delivers what farmers want. Development of integrated crop-livestock production systems in the low-rainfall areas of West Asia and North Africa has shown the importance of the community approach in the sustainable management of collective property resources, such as rangelands and water. This approach has been widely adopted by national programs in dry areas.

    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:

    Commune agro-ecosystems analysis (CAEA) is a participatory approach designed to help communities improve decision making at the commune (subdistrict) level. 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.

    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.
