The study makes a valuable contribution to the evidence base for policy and practical support to community based adaptation in arid and semi-arid lands in Kenya. It also presents a model for economic analysis which can provide results at scale to test a range of possible climate and adaptation scenarios. Written in technical detail, with clear reference to methods, models and findings, the report is timely and useful for policy makers, technical staff, adaptation practitioners and economists working in Kenya's ASALs and beyond, to understand the key messages and how they were derived. A policy brief with the key messages and a technical brief on the methodology have been produced alongside the report.
