The road to resilience: a scoping study for the Taadoud transition to development project
This scoping study explores the resilience strategies of households in multiple livelihood systems by describing how households in Darfur have coped with conflict and other shocks over the past fifteen years. It begins with a brief description of livelihood systems in the study area as they were around 15 years ago to form a basis for reference, although livelihoods will probably never again look as they did at that time. The population’s experience of shocks and stresses since then follows, along with a description of the resulting changes in those systems, largely as a response to these shocks. The study then reviews how families are currently adapting to this new context in an attempt to integrate risk reduction into livelihood strategies and to recover the level of resilience necessary to thrive in the highly variable climate of the Sahel.
