  • Points: explain NDVI; high variability; cyclical nature (ENSO); point out events.
  • Zermou much drier than Fakara; can also see droughts.IMPLICATIONS: high heterogeneity; soils also make difference
  • Points: Kajiado dynamicsLaikpia dynamics and reasons for possible difference
  • Mobility and markets, but host of other factors mediate.Also changing herd composition
  • Points: IPCC, GCM downscaling; three impacts: temperature, change in precip, more CO2.
  • Herd dynamics models: droughts every 5 years fine; every 3 drives density lower;Livelihoods: ?? Croppers to livestock keepers?How restricted are pastoral options?

    THE FUTURE OF PASTORALISM IN AFRICA
    International conference to debate research findings and policy options, Addis Ababa, 21-23 March 2011
  • Pastoralists and climate risk
    OromiyaRegion, Ethiopia by Andrew Heavens
  • Current climate variability
    Figure 1: Variation of monthly (blue) and 12 month running average (red) of NDVI for Kajiado district from 1982 to end of 2009. Source: unpublished ILRI analysis.
  • Climate variability, Niger
  • Vegetation biomass and livestock mortality
    Biomass and NDVI, Kajiado, Kenya
    Biomass and NDVI, Laikipia, Kenya
  • Management strategies for climate risk

  • GCM consistency in regional precipitation projections for 2090-2099 (SRES A1B). IPCC, 2007
  • Coefficient of variation (%) of the change in length of growing period for an ensemble of 14 GCMs
  • Climate change exposure: changes in rain per rainfall event
    Ericksen et al, 2011
  • Unpublished IRLI analysis
  • East Africa:
    Simulated plant funtional types:
    (top) 20th century
    (bottom) 20th and 21st centuries (one climate model)
    Doherty et al 2009
  • Implications for herds, livelihoods
  • Thank you…
