New brief: How to reduce vulnerability in rural Burkina Faso: keeping the trees and planting more or diversifying the livelihoods?

New publication by Jenny Friman within our thematic collaboration with SIANI. This brief explores how two different framings can produce different conclusions about vulnerability in Burkina Faso's agroforestry system, resulting in different actions for different people.

How to understand vulnerability and how to reduce it? If you ask this question to several people on the street they are likely to give you different answers. Same is probably true for those who work with policy and make decision on how to reduce vulnerability of people in rural communities in Africa or elsewhere.

Different understanding results in different way of doing things. At the policy level it means that the entire chain of actions, from national to community level, will be implemented in a way policy makers interpreted the terms in the first place.

Our new policy brief prepared together with our member Jenny Friman, in collaboration with SIANI, takes a look at vulnerability from two different perspectives using the example of parklands in Bonogo, Burkina Faso.
