The data were collected in the context of the "Brazil East Africa Peru India Climate Capacities (B-EPICC)" project.
In recent decades, droughts and floods in Ethiopia have contributed to rural exodus and large migration movements, while exacerbating the country's food security problem. In addition, climate change could negatively impact food security by making stronger El Niño events more likely and by causing both an increase in mean average temperature and extreme heat events. Studies on non-traditional security risks such as climate change and corresponding adaptation strategies are therefore becoming increasingly important. The B-EPICC project addresses Ethiopia's adaptation to extreme weather events.
