As such, elucidating these vulnerabilities and resources of power in regards to the adaptive capacities had to help profitable version and steer clear of maladaptation is necessary for destiny coverage formula. even though the empirical dialogue is geographically according to West Africa, its applicability when it comes to the strategies, constructions, wishes, innovations, and suggestions for coverage transcends the area and gives priceless classes for realizing model generally within the constructing world.
