We combine socioeconomic data from a large-scale household survey with historical climate data to map the climate sensitivity of availability and access dimensions of food security in Mali, and infer the ways in which at-risk communities may have been impacted by persistent climatic shift. Thirty years after 1982–1984, the period...
