The Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction: Case Study and Exercise Source Book
United Nations Environment Programme, Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction, Center for Natural Resources and Development

This ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction and climate change adaption (Eco-DRR/CCA) case study booklet is designed as a guided learning resource and supports a problem-based learning approach. The booklet enables masters students of the Eco-DRR course to work independently on the provided case studies and exercises, but it can also be used as a freestanding publication. The case studies are self-explanatory and no further documents are needed. However, where necessary, the lecturer can support the students with introductory explanations and also prepare for a final in-class discussion of each case study. The case study exercises are recommended to make the students apply the knowledge gained throughout lectures and to get to know ecosystem-based adaptation in different geographical regions and ecozones. We also recommend including the case studies and respective exercises throughout teaching the Eco-DRR module, preferably after having taught the first block or more to equip the students with some applied knowledge on the topic.

Pastoralism in Practice: Monitoring Livestock mobility in Contemporary Sudan
United Nations Environment Programme

Given the spotlight on livestock mobility, this study aimed to develop and pilot new methods and approaches to investigating livestock mobility, in order to review the resilience of the pastoralist systems and related adaptations, and the wider trends influencing this. This report follows the completion of the development and pilot phase of the research and presents selected findings from the first three to five months of monitoring. While this is sufficient to pilot the methodological innovation, it is insufficient to capture all the seasons within the annual cycle.
