Climate Change Vulnerability in Transboundary Basins and Aquifers: Assessment



LTS was commissioned by UNEP, to inform a high level report identifying the transboundary basins and aquifers in Africa that are most at risk as a result of climate change. The report identified the key vulnerabilities and priorities for action in these basins and aquifers providing UNEP with the necessary information to engage with AMCOW on adaptation within transboundary systems. This assessment drew on state-of-the-art climate science and modelled scenarios and considered these against demographic and economic development data and trends; water resource, biodiversity and infrastructure risks, and indicators of institutional cooperation and capability.
