CLIMATE CHANGE AND WATER RESOURCES IN WEST AFRICA: AN ASSESSMENT OF GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT
THE STUDIES ON CLIMATE CHANGE VULNERABILITY AND ADAPTATION IN WEST AFRICA
This document is part of a series of studies produced by the African and Latin American Resilience to Climate Change (ARCC) project that address adaptation to climate change in West Africa. Within the ARCC West Africa studies, this document falls in the subseries on Climate Change and Water Resources in West Africa. ARCC has also developed a subseries on Agricultural Adaptation to Climate Change in the Sahel, Climate Change and Conflict in West Africa, and Climate Change in Mali.
THE SUBSERIES ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND WATER RESOURCES
Upon the request of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), ARCC undertook the West Africa water studies to increase understanding of the potential impacts of climate change on water resources in West Africa and to identify means to support adaptation to these changes. Other documents in the Climate Change and Water Resources in West Africa series include Transboundary River Basins, Mapping the Exposure of Socioeconomic and Natural Systems of West Africa to Coastal Climate Stressors, and Coastal Biophysical and Institutional Analysis.
