The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction has engaged CIMA Research Foundation to generate risk profiles on flood and drought in 16 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

This paper presents the results from a multi-country research on loss and damage in vulnerable communities, to study how households with different vulnerability profiles try to deal with climatic stressors and their (in)ability to avoid loss and damage.
