Small Grants Programme: Perceptions of climate variability, current exposure of households to shocks and coping in semi-arid lands: a case study from the Central Plateau region in Burkina Faso

What are the potential obstacles for adaptation to climate change? This paper compares and contrasts household perceptions of climate change in rural Burkina Faso with the actual risks and shocks that households are exposed to. The report aims to provide a better understanding of the context in which these households live, and the constraints they are faced with.
