The project delivers an agro-ecological zone model, AZS, consisting of land evaluation methods with multiple-criteria and socioeconomic analysis to evaluate spatial and dynamic aspects of agriculture - strengthening national and regional climate change impact assessment capacity in view of appropriate adaptation solutions. Specifically the model:
- computes vulnerability maps with regional detail over key climate change and food security hotspots in the region;
- analyzes the effectiveness of land-based adaptation, in terms of avoided damage, increased production system capacity and resilience, and including synergies with mitigation.
