This study analyzed research on East Africa, multiple risks and Climate Change using bibliometric analysis. The main findings are that for many countries in East Africa, studies are absent, even on single risk assessments. Overall, multi-risk assessments that analyze hazard and impact chains are missing. Only a few cities have received scientific attention at the city level. The findings can help scientists as well as policymakers identify research blind spots as well as research-rich samples for further studies. This will be important for comparing regions, countries, or cities in East Africa in global assessments or science policy reports.
