The purpose of this project was to use the Household Vulnerability Index (HVI) to assess rural household vulnerability to climate change- disasters, in terms of food and water security; so as to provide the basis for strategic interventions as well as recommending a potential suite of fiscal and economic measures to be used to improve the resilience of communities to climate change for targeted beneficiaries. The study focused on the Eastern Cape and Limpopo provinces: two provinces that have been singled out as more vulnerable to disasters.
