  • Points: explain NDVI; high variability; cyclical nature (ENSO); point out events.
  • Points: Kajiado dynamicsLaikpia dynamics and reasons for possible difference
  • Points: IPCC, GCM downscaling; three impacts: temperature, change in precip, more CO2.

      • 18. What do the exposure thresholds mean for dryland areas?
      • 19. Constraints on social/ econ/ institutional issues of adaptive capacity
      • 20. Safety nets
