Agricultural programs in Africa

Jillian Jensens research on agricultural programs in Africa and the Middle East related to improving livelihood outcomes through better water management was utilized by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in a new USAID document, for which Ms. Jensen is co-author. Her particular research focused on a cross-disciplinary evaluation of the biophysical and social factors contributing to vulnerability and risk factors associated with climate change where institutional, scientific and economic resources are constrained and environmental variability is high.
