Main activities

Research focuses on strategies that individuals, households and communities are implementing to adapt and/or to be resilient in arid areas when they are affected by environmental, social, economic or political changes or shocks. Description of links between the vulnerability of individuals or households to that of the ecosociosystems in which they are embedded helps to understand social and environmental dynamics interactions.

Especially, it seeks to understand the root causes of individuals or groups inequalities (gender, status, socio-cultural i) and social vulnerability and their consequences on the ability to manage adaptation or resilience.

Using the capabilities approach, analysis and evolution of rural livelihoods are documented through socio-economic observatories of rural household.
