This paper describes the methodology developed to assess what role selected community-based/participatory natural resource management initiatives undertaken by Save the Children with pastoral communities in the lowlands of Borana and Guji zones in Ethiopia have in contributing to climate change adaptation. It also outlines the results and recommendations generated from applying this bespoke methodology at the study sites. Similar sites that also suffered from drought and had the same history of development and humanitarian interventions, but not with Save the Children, were also visited for comparative purposes.
