Climate Change Vulnerability and Women's Land Rights: The Case of Arua District

Findings of this study show that Arua district is very vulnerable to climate change impact risk. The vulnerability and effects of different climate hazards and land issues vary with social groups and livelihood activities. The key climate hazards identified were drought, erratic weather patterns as well as climate induced pests and diseases. The land rights issues included lack of: (1) land ownership, (2) control over land, and (3) knowledge on land rights. Smallholder farmers were associated with the highest level of exposure to drought, floods, erratic weather patterns as well as climate induced pests and diseases like maize streak, cassava mosaic/brown streak, ground nuts rosette, among others. Women were particularly more affected by drought than other groups. The nature and degree of exposure to these hazards was worse for women/people with disabilities and those living with HIV/ AIDs because of marginalisation and inherent physical inabilities.

STRENGTHENING RESILIENCE AND PROMOTING INCLUSIVE GOVERNANCE PROGRAM (STRENPO): Experiences of advocacy and action for climate change resilience

Climate change is a reality that we are already living with; it presents both global and local concerns. In Uganda, climate change presents a threat to the agricultural economy where over 80% of Uganda’s population derive their livelihoods. The agricultural sector which is purely rain-fed contributes 37% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Currently, Uganda loses 200,000ha of forest cover annually (MWE SPR 2017) which interferes with the natural processes for the rain-fed agriculture. These trends call for serious action to mitigate the effects of climate change.
