Although there is a relationship between climate change and poverty reduction, some countries in the Sahel region of Africa are yet to incorporate a climate change risk management strategy into their poverty reduction programme. The aim of this research is therefore to evaluate the subjective and quantitative analysis of climate change risk management strategies in all the nine countries that constitute the Sahel region. Both a qualitative and a quantitative approach were used in the investigation. The qualitative approach was used to make a subjective analysis of the climate change mitigating framework with regard to poverty reduction issues at country level.
