How Specific Resilience Pillars Mitigate the Impact of Drought on Food Security: Evidence from Uganda

Resilience is defined as “the capacity that ensures that stressors and shocks do not have long-lasting resilience capacities allow a household to absorb the drought’s impact and carry on. They include availability of informal safety nets, access to remittances, and asset ownership. Second, adaptive capacities allow the household to change their behavior in ways that reduce the effects of the drought.

These include availability of human capital, weather information, financial resources, and social capital. Third, transformative resilience capacities allow households to change their behavior in ways that make them more resilient to future shocks. These include availability of formal safety nets, access to remunerative markets, communal natural resources, and infrastructure. This paper also asks the question “which types of resilience capacities are the most important in mitigating the impact of drought on food security in Uganda?”
