The adequacy of management options to cope with the predicted changes in climate evaluated. • Climate change adaptation strategies for the target locations formulated. 4. Through hands-on capacity building, institutional capacity in understanding climate change impacts and developing effective adaptation responses strengthened • 2 PhD degrees obtained. Research capacity-building activities in Kenya and Hamburg celebrated. • Final CALESA workshop in Kenya conducted. • Several articles in scientiﬁc journals and books published.
Other Promotion and Dissemination Activities Continued promotion and dissemination of the activities and outputs of the CALESA project took place not only during the lifetime of the project, but also during one year after. This was meant to facilitate and effective and adequate promotion of the ﬁnal batch of transnational results and the lessons learnt of the project.

A number of regions/subregions across SSA have just emerged from, or are experiencing conflicts. A new wave of ecological refugees will spark a series of conflicts among communities and complicating the development agenda of several SSA countries, if there is no action to reduce the effects of climate change now (UNFCCC 2007). A good baseline study to complement earlier efforts on the possible effects of climate change in vulnerable, poor countries is therefore urgently needed, before sustainable mitigation measures can be implemented that will stabilize or stimulate economic growth in the long-term.
