dc.description.abstractThis Chapter discusses vulnerability and coping survey findings in 16 sampled districts of Zimbabwe. It is divided into four sections. The first provides a brief conceptual review of vulnerability and coping strategies. The second provides background information on key patterns and trends on vulnerability in the country in the years leading to the survey, thereby presenting the general vulnerability context within which the survey was undertaken. The last two sections examine vulnerability and coping determinants and patterns in the 16 sampled districts.en
