Unequal Adaptations: A history of environmental change in the Sudan-Eritrea-Ethiopia border region

Historically, collaboration across the Sudan-Eritrea-Ethiopia border region has allowed communities to develop complementary strategies for using the region’s natural resources and survive in spite of environmental volatility. Yet man-made climate change is disrupting these long-standing patterns, making adaptation necessary. This report explores similar events in the past: the Little Ice Age (c1640-c1820) and the 1887 introduction of rinderpest to help us understand the region’s current adaptation to the challenges posed by environmental change.
