Abstract:Societies in semi-arid areas in developing regions are amongst those most vulnerable to climate variability and potentially most vulnerable to climate change. The vulnerability to climate variability emerges from a combination of the level of availability of natural resources and the human dependency on these resources. In semi-arid regions, the limited availability of water and the low reliability of this availability pose strong restrictions on the use of natural resources. On the other hand, population often has a high density, and is strongly dependent on natural resources with little short-term options to reduce the dependency.
