Coping with El Niño in Tanzania: Differentiated local impacts and household-level responses

The impacts of El Niño are most serious in poor rural parts of the world, where households decisions about how to respond are vital if they are to minimise the harm they suffer. In this project, we examine how Wildlife Management Areas – a specific form of community-based natural resource management institution – affect the ability of local communities to respond to El Niño.
