In addition to the basis risk portion of livestock mortality in the location that the model inherently cannot explain, there is also the possibility of error if the model specification and parameters chosen based on the ALRMP sample imperfectly reflect the true state of the system in explaining area average livestock mortality.
The limited size of the ALRMP sample, however, precludes setting aside some of those data for out-of-sample performance evaluation.
ls]), were first constructed based on the cluster-specific response functions established using the ALRMP livestock mortality data and location-specific NDVI data from 1982 to 2008.
This component will provide support to enhance the ALRMP secretariat to support the implementation of the additional KACCAL mandate and activities.
Component 3: Support Community Driven initiatives to enhance long-term livelihoods strategies KACCAL will enhance the ALRMPs CDD approach to foster appropriate climate risk management strategies and investments at the community level.
