Description

Mainstream climate change considerations into Integrated Water Resources Management in the Pangani Basin, so that it may support the equitable provision of freshwater for the environment and for livelihoods for current and future generations, increase the basin's preparedness against climate change and variability, and include community- based adaptation measures and environmental considerations in a sound IWRM framework. The project raises awareness of water managers and users about changing climatic conditions (especially reduced flows) through provision of technical data, planning, and improved allocation, capacity building and awareness-raising. The project will focus on the following three technical areas: 1)Understanding current and future climatic vulnerability (in the broadest sense of the term): developing and using information for equitable water allocation in a changing hydrological regime; 2) Negotiated outcomes to minimize future climatic vulnerability and future climatic risk: Continuing dialogues to sustainable water resources management; 3) Mainstreaming climate change adaptation in the water sector: national linkages and lessons learned.
