    • Book release: Valuing Variability

    • Valuing Variability: New perspectives on climate resilient drylands development A new book published by IIED in partnership with the Rainfed Livestock Network and Revitalizing Rainfed Agriculture Network in India, Peking University, China and the Drylands Learning and Capacity Building Initiative, Kenya. This book was officially released at Nairobi, Kenya on 28th April 2015 to coincide with the CBA 9 conference. The book brings together the words and experiences of farmers, herders and researchers from across the globe who see the inherent variability of the drylands as a resource to be valued, rather than a problem to be avoided. The book argues that agricultural productivity can be improved in dryland environments by working with variability rather than seeking to control it – a view that runs counter to traditional development practices in arid and semi-arid lands. A free copy of the book can be downloaded from the hyperlink below.
