This report, which encompasses the findings of a Regional Diagnostic Study (RDS) for West Africa, was undertaken in 2014-15 to advance understanding of climate change in semi-arid regions of Africa and Asia. The RDS represents the first phase of a research effort under the Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR) project. ASSAR is one of four consortia generating new knowledge of climate change hotspots under the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA1). The ASSAR project operates in Western, Eastern and Southern Africa and Western India. The ASSAR focal countries in Africa are Ghana, Mali, Ethiopia, Kenya, Botswana, and Namibia, and in India the focal states are Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, and Karnataka.
